At the Annual Spring Meeting, 
At Berkeley and North Nibley, 
Tuesday, June 6th, 1905. 

Although the Society had visited Berkeley and its 
immediate neighbourhood upon more than one of their 
excursions, those pleasant visits fell some years ago, and 
the Council were justified in again journeying to this part of 
the country, more especially as with a peep at the quaint 
little town, the castle, and the church, they combined 
a ride to North Nibley, where, besides the fine scenery 
to gladden the eye, there are traditions of Tyndale, the 
first translator of the whole Bible into Enghsh. There 
are few places easily inspected in a day in this part of 
England that are more interesting than the small but ancient 
town which is pleasantly situated in the fertile Berkeley 
Vale. The town grew up under the protection of the castle, 
a fortress always to be associated with the murder of Edward 
II., though a more agreeable reminiscence is that which 
connects Berkeley with Dr. Jenner, who introduced the 
practice of vaccination. The weather was anything but 
favourable for an outdoor gathering, but, despite this 
drawback, a large party assembled, those from Bristol and 
those from the northern part of the county uniting at 
Berkeley Road, whence they reached the Berkeley station. 
Here vehicles were in attendance to convey them into the 
town. About 150 ladies and gentlemen assembled, and

as this number could not with any comfort be all accommo- 
dated at one time at the castle, a division of forces was 
made, one section proceeding to the church and the other to 
the castle, so that the time might be utilised until luncheon, 
after which the two parties reversed the order, and thus all 
were enabled to see the interesting structures and listen to 
the description of details by the General Secretary and other 

Members found much to interest them in the church of St. Mary, 
which consists of a nave, 95 feet long, with north and south aisles, north 
porch with parvise and a south porch, and a chancel, with a modern 
vestry on the north side and the burial chapel of the Lords of Berkeley on 
the south side. A detached tower, built in 1753, stands far away from 
the church. It is said that attached to the tower which previously stood 
on its site were the remains of an eariy church, but nothing is known of 
its history. 

The church, with its noble west front and graceful arcades, seems to 
belong to an unfinished conception of some thirteenth-century architect, 
the western flanking towers, the central tower, and the transepts of which 
were never built. 

Had it not been suggested by Mr. E. A. Freeman^ that the Early 
English work of the nave belongs to the time of Thomas, the second 
Lord Berkeley of that name, 1281-1321, we might have attributed it to 
his predecessor, Maurice II., 1243-1281, and to the last decade of his 

Before entering the sacred building it is well to examine the west front. 
Supporting the end of the nave are two large buttresses, the northern one 
containing a staircase which leads to the roof. The great west window 
has five trefoil-headed lights grouped together in a framework of Early 
English hood-moulding with banded shafts and foliated capitals. The 
lights increase in height and width towards the centre. Below this 
window is an elegant cinquefoil-headed doorway with an obtuse-angled 
arch of many orders of masonry, set between two blank arches. Above 
all these are one rectangular and two acute-angled gabled hoods. The 
terminations of the nave aisles contain each a three-light window with 
simple fourteenth-century tracery. 

Low roofs have been substituted for the original high-pitched Early 
English roofs. This change was probably the outcome of economy ; the 
old rafters, being found to be decayed where they rested on the wall- 
plates, were shortened and used again at a much lower and wider angle. 

1 £cc/m"o^og^is^ for 1854, No. Cr. 



The old oak door at the west end still bears traces of a fight which took 
place in and outside the church during the Civil War. There are holes 
through which the defenders fired their muskets, and bullet marks from, 
the besiegers' guns. ' 

We enter the church by a fourteenth-century north porch, above which 
the fifteenth-century builders have erected a parvise or priest's chamber. 
A good stone vaulting springs from corbels with grotesque carving. 

On the south side of the church there is a transitional Norman door- 
way, a relic it may be of the twelfth-century church, said to have been 
built by Robert Fitzharding, 1095-1170. 

Viewing the interior from the west end, one cannot fail to be struck 
with the beauty of the nave arcades. Indeed they approach perfection, 
with their twelve clustered columns, floriated capitals and pointed arches. 
The section of the pier is a lozenge with four shafts set diagonally to 
the four cardinal points, and four intermediate ones, all filleted. The 
sculptured foliage is of the thirteenth-century conventional type, the label 
terminations are heads with head-dresses of the time of Edward I. One 
of these labels is very similar to a corbel in the chapel of the castle which 
bears the strange device of a toad resting its fore legs on the heads of two 
young persons. 

The nave roof is of timber, low pitched, and of fifteenth-century 
workmanship. The corbels from whence it springs belong to the earlier 
fourteenth-century roof. The space above the arches on the north side is 
bare and unpierced ; on the south side the clerestory windows are too low 
and narrow. In the north-west angle of the nave is a structure which has 
puzzled many ; a staircase terminating in a platform, composed of three 
overlapping brackets, each ornamented with a human head. This 
platform, which has been ruthlessly cut away on its south side, suggests 
the existence at one time of a western gallery which passed in front of the 
great west window. Beneath the second arch from the east on the south 
side of the nave, is an altar-tomb on which rest the effigies of Thomas III. 
gth Lord Berkeley, who died in 1361, and his second wife Katherine. 
In the windows hard by are the figures of three of their infant children. 

The obtuse-angled chancel arch, with its clustered responds, looks as 
though it had been taken down and reset at a much higher level. 

The stone rood screen, an unusual feature in Gloucestershire, has three 
compartments: the lower part was originally filled with plain masonry, 
but the nineteenth-century restorers have pierced it and inserted tracery. 
The doorways and newel staircase leading to the rood-loft still remain. 
Above the screen may be seen a wall-painting representing the Last 
Judgment. Close to the screen a Roman tile, with the letters dclvi., — 
" Decurio legionis sextse," has been built into the wall. 

The aisles of the nave were reconstructed in the fourteenth century ; 


Transactions for the Year 1905. 

the south aisle, which has a roll under the windows externally, is earlier 
than the north aisle, which has no string course. These aisle windows 
are not interesting examples of Decorated architecture, if we except the 
round window over the south door. Similar round windows occur at 
Tewkesbury, Cheltenham, Charlton Kings, and elsewhere in Gloucester- 
shire. A drawing of the Berkeley one is given in the Glossary of 
Architecture, plate 261.^ 

There were three chantries at least in Berkeley Church, in honour 
•of St. Maurice, St. Mar} , and St. Andrew ; and the piscinae of the altars 
may be seen at the east ends of the nave and its aisles. There are also 
cedilla in the south wall of the south aisle. 

The chancel, which is only 43 feet long and scarcely worthy of such 
a fine nave, has side windows of three or four different periods. The 
great fifteenth-century window consists of nine lights under a four-centred 
arch. There is an Easter sepulchre on the north side of the altar. 

A doorway, now closed, leads into the beautiful fifteenth-century 
burial chapel of the Lords of Berkeley. Beneath an arch which separates 
the chancel from this chapel, resting on an altar-tomb enriched with 
sculpture, lies the effigy of James, iith Lord Berkeley, who built 
the chapel and died in 1463. Beside him is the smaller effigy of his 
second son Tames, who was slain in France whilst serving under the 
■celebrated John Talbot. 

At the east end of the chapel is the tomb of Henry, 17th Lord 
Berkeley, who died in 1613, with his effigy and the effigy of his first 
wife, the Lady Catherine. These and the other Berkeley effigies were 
drawn and described by Mrs. Bagnall Oakeley for our Society (see 
Transactions, vol. xv. , pp. 94, 95, 99, and 100). 

The sculptured pinnacles on the exterior of the Berkeley Chapel and 
the bosses of its vaulted roof deserve far more attention than has hitherto 
been given to them. Through the kindness of Dr. Oscar Clark we are 
able to give photographs of some of them. 

The face of the parapet is enriched with strawberry leaves and with 
figures of angels holding shields. The buttresses are surmounted by 
pyramidal pinnacles, crocketed at the angles and terminated in finials. 
In front of one of these pinnacles is a large figure excellently carved. 
Thanks to the courtesy of Messrs. George Bell and Sons, publishers, 
of York Street, Covent Garden, we are able to reproduce the illustration 
of St. George and the Dragon from the late Mr. Bloxham's Principles of 
■Gothic Ecclesiastical Architecture. 

On another pinnacle is a figure representing the Witch of Berkeley 
borne away on the back of the devil. Her legend, which appears in the 
Polichronicon of Reinulph of Chester, has been made the subject of a 
ballad by Southey. 

1 Plate 163, 4th Ed., 1845. 



The vaulting bosses represent the Annunciation and Assumption of the 
Blessed Virgin, the Holy Trinity, and our Lord in glory. There are^ 
moreover, symbols of the four Evangelists, adoring angels, the Knot and 
the Mermaid, badges of the Berkeley family, ^nd some grotesques. This 
chapel is in need of careful repair. In the churchyard are the tombs 
of Thomas Pearce, five times Mayor of Berkeley, and of Richard Pearce,^ 
the Earl of Suffolk's fool. 

Some remarks of Canon Stackhouse on this interesting church appear 
in our Transactions, vol. xv., pp. 1-3, and a paper by the late Mr, J. H. 
Cooke in vol. vi., pp. 307-309. Illustrations of crosses, &c., found during 
the restoration of Berkeley Church in 1865 are given in our Transactions, 
vol. iii., p. 257. 

The exterior of the castle and those parts of the interior thrown open 
were inspected, and Canon Bazeley gave a brief address in the great hall, 
which he said was, like those halls at Oxford and Cambridge, entered 
through a vestibule. There were arrangements for passing the dishes 
from the buttery, and the custom which prevailed in mediaeval times was 
preserved at the Universities. Alluding to the shell keep of the castle, 
he said a shell keep was an old Saxon mound, with palisades in pre- 
Norman times, and in Norman times cased with stonework. Much 
interest was felt by the visitors in the chapel, a charming feature in the 
interior, and the valuable paintings on the grand staircase were also 
viewed with gratification. In addition to portraits of the celebrated men 
and women of earlier years is the likeness of the late Lord Fitzhardinge,. 
which was presented to him at a county meeting in the Shire Hall, 
Gloucester. The chair presented by Sir Francis Drake to Queen Elizabeth,, 
Queen Anne's chair, and other objects which had royal associations, 
were also pointed out by the attendants. The programme of the day's 
excursion, prepared by the General Secretary, was like other productions 
of his of a similar description — full of interest. 

This castle was founded in the year 1154 by Robert Fitzhardiog^ 
Propositus of Bristol, on the site of an earlier stronghold consisting of an 
artificial mound surmounted by a stockade. 

It will be observed that the castle, church, and town of Berkeley stand 
on a plateau some fifty feet above the meadows lying to the south and 
west. The castle occupies the southern extremity of this high ground ; a 
little to the north is the parish church, and beyond is the ancient free 
borough of Berkeley. 

The castle was defended on the north and west by the deep moat 
which isolated it from the church and town. On the south and east the 
ground sloping towards the meadows was scarped and rendered steeper by 
the hand of man. The meadows — now highly fertile and well-drained — 
are almost on a level with the River Severn. In the Middle Ages they 


Transactions for the Year 1905. 

became in wet weather an impassable morass, and at other times were 
capable of inundation. 

Remains of Roman civiUsation have been found at Berkeley and its 
immediate neighbourhood, and the form of the town has been adduced 
as evidence of its Roman origin. 

In the chapel of the castle is a small slab, perhaps part of an altar, of 
Roman workmanship. It represents the sacrifice of a pig. There are 
three human figures: Hsrcules with his club, a female, and a priest 
standing at a horned altar. This is said to have been found near the 
castle. A Roman tile is preserved in the church. 

The fact that Tilhere and Ethelhun, bishops of Worcester a.d. 778-781 
and 915-922 respectively, were previously abbots of Berkeley, is a proof 
that there was a religious house here for some centuries before the 
Conquest. This house stood, no doubt, at Oldminster ; its site is now 
covered by railway sidings. 

There was also a nunnery at Berkeley, possessing numerous estates, 
suppressed in the time of Edward the Confessor, at the instigation of Earl 
Godwin, 1 

Berkeley Hernesse or Lordship appears in Domesday Survey as a 
royal demesne, and Berkeley as a free borough, held of the king by 
Roger de Berkeley at a fee-farm rent equal to /500 and more ot 
modern money. 

No mention is made in the Survey of a castle here, but Roger 
de Berkeley claims a castellulum at Ness (Sharpness on the Severn). 

William the Conqueror visited Berkeley in 1080, and the town 
and lordship were laid waste by the barons who were in arms against 
William Rufus. 

Three Roger de Berkeleys — father, son, and grandson — held Berkeley 
in succession as servants in fee-farm during the wars of Stephen and 
Matilda. The last of these refused to pay his rent, and he was in conse- 
quence dispossessed by Henry, who in 11 53 gave the lordship to his 
adherent, Robert, son of Harding, a citizen of Bristol, with a promise to 
build a castle for him at Berkeley, 

Roger de Berkeley, unwilling to submit to what he naturally considered 
an injustice, kept up a kind of guerilla warfare against Robert Fitzharding 
until, at the suggestion of Duke Henry, a modus vivendi was agreed upon 
about November, 1153. A double marriage was arranged between the 
sons and daughters of Robert Fitzharding and Roger de Berkeley. The 
former was established as lord of Berkeley Hernesse, and Roger de 
Berkeley and his heir obtained a confirmation of certain manors at 
Dursley and elsewhere. Two branches of the older family "of Berkeley" 
flourished- -one at Dursley till 1382, the other at Cubberley till 1414, 
1 Domesday Book, f. i6.[, (Jdecestie. 



•when the family estates passed away with the marriages of heiresses. 
The male descendants of Robert Fitzharding have continued, with the 
exception of a temporary alienation to the Crown during the reigns of the 
Tudor kings, to possess the lordship till the present time. 

There can be hardly any other example of a Norman baronial castle 
•inhabited by its founder and his heirs for more than seven hundred years. 
A plan which has been reproduced from Mr. G. T. Clark's admirable 
paper on Berkeley Castle in the Transactions of this Society, vol. i., will 
•enable us to recognise the various parts of the castle which exist at the 
present time. 

The castle is approached by a permanent bridge over the moat which 
superseded the drawbridge in 1587, and the outer gate-house [d] remains, 
but the flanking tower and curtain have disappeared. 

On passing through the portal the visitor finds himself in a triangular 
■courtyard [c] , of which the outer gate-house is the apex and the inner 
gate-house and the keep [a] the base. This outer court is a ward or 
barbican covering the main entrance and the keep. The breach in the 
west wall of the keep which was partially made by Colonel Rainsborough 
during the siege in 1645 was enlarged in 1648 by command of Cromwell, 
when the castle was restored to George, Lord Berkeley. 

The large bell in the centre of the outer court was brought from 
China by Captain Dew, of H.M.S. Encounter, and presented to Lord 

The inner gate [e] , which appears to be of fourteenth-century or 
Decorated architecture, connects the keep with a range of domestic 

On passing through the double archway with its portcullis groove the 
visitor enters the great court of the castle [b] , an irregular rectangular 
space having the domestic buildings on the south, east and north, and the 
keep [a] with its fore building [f] on the west. The early Norman castle 
at first consisted of the keep with two wards surrounded by a lofty wall or 
curtain and a deep moat. 

On entering the great court the visitor sees on his right the State 
drawing-rooms and other apartments. In front of him are the chapel and 
bell tower, the great hall, the butteries, and the kitchen; on his left various 
domestic offices and the keep. 

Of these buildings the keep is the earliest in date and the most 
interesting. It is what is known as a shell keep, and is about 50 yards 
in diameter, including the walls, which are about 8 feet thick. The 
■original mound of earth, which the lower part of the walls enclose, is about 
22 feet high. The walls outside are 62 feet high, and inside 40 feet. 

Projecting from the walls of the keep are three half-round towers, or 
bastion turrets, 20 feet in diameter, which seem to have been open inside. 


Transactions for the Year 1905. 

or only closed with timber. The turret projecting to the east contains an 
oratory or chapel, dedicated to St. John Baptist, and a well [g] . This 
building is now used as a muniment room. 

The second half-round tower to the south [g] contains a dungeon 
25 feet deep and a room above in which the unfortunate Edward II. is 
said to have been imprisoned. The third tower to the south-west also 
contains a dungeon. It is blocked up, and concealed by buildings of a 
later date. Besides these, there is a large rectangular tower to the north, 
called the " Thorpe " tower [h] , because the family of that name held the 
manor of Wanswell by the tenure of its defence. This tower has east 
and west turrets ; the turret on the east contains a staircase of 54 steps, 
leading to the battlements. The view from the summit of the Thorpe 
tower is extensive and beautiful. The entrance to the keep is by a covered 
staircase on the east side [f] . Above the gateway is a small chamber, 
lighted by two windows and a lancet loop, in which, tradition says, 
Edward II. was imprisoned. This chamber contains an ancient bedstead,, 
with hangings of needlework. 

The main entrance to the keep at the top of the staircase consists of a 
handsome Norman gateway, with a plain tympanum and one ornamented 
shaft on the exterior, and chevron-pattern jambs within. On the outer 
wall of the keep are nine narrow pilasters or buttresses. The inner wall 
appears to have been lined with lodgings for the soldiers ; these were no 
doubt constructed of wood. 

The chapel, dedicated to St. Mary the Virgin [j], occupies the south- 
east angles of the great court. It has a semi-hexagonal apse, a vestry, 
and a mural passage, or aisle, on the south side, which opens to the 
chapel by four foliated arches, corresponding to windows pierced in the 
outer wall of the castle. 

A Tudor gallery at the west end serves as a family pew. The supporters 
of the royal arms, a greyhound and a dragon, were used by Henry VII. 
and Henry VIII. 

The chapel contains some good late sixteenth-century glass, a few 
mediaeval floor and wall tiles (embossed), and funeral escutcheons and 

On the walls and roof of this chapel, in the fourteenth-century style of 
handwriting, are passages from the Revelation of St. John, translated from 
the Vulgate by the learned Cornishman, Trevisa, who served as chaplain 
to three Lords Berkeley from 1357 to 1412. 

The walls of the chapel are Norman, but the roof and other parts are 
Decorated. In the reign of Edward III. a bull was obtained from 
Pope Urban V., 1362-1370, granting spiritual privileges to those who 
worshipped in this chapel, and in the Oratory of St. John the Baptist in 
the keep.

Below the chapel is a crypt or cellar with stone vaulting springing 
from shafts of a late Norman character. 

From the chapel and great drawing-room a seventeenth-century 
staircase descends to the great hall [l], which is said to be 62 ft. long 
by 32ft. wide and 32^ ft. high. On the w^st side are four flat-headed 
windows divided into four by transoms. On the east side are three 
fourteenth-century windows inserted in the ancient Norman wall or 
curtain. One of them communicates by a flight of stone stairs with the 
terrace walks beneath. 

The tattered banners are said to have belonged to the regiment which 
Augustus, 4th Earl and 22nd Baron Berkeley, commanded at Culloden. 
The windows are filled with the armorial bearings of the families with 
which the Lords of Berkeley intermarried from 11 15 to 1785 

A list of the pictures in the hall and on the great staircase has been 
provided for visitors. 

At the west end of the hall, behind the modern screen and below the 
minstrels' gallery, are three fine "Berkeley" arches opening into the 
butteries [m]. The kitchen [n], which is said to have been re-roofed by 
Henry VII., when Berkeley was a royal manor, lies to the west, and is an 
irregular hexagon. The larders, dairy, and bakehouse [o] are beyond the 
kitchen on the north side of the great court. 

Harding, the father of the founder of the castle, is said to have been 
the son of a Danish king, but no satisfactory evidence has been adduced 
in favour of the tradition. He appears to have accompanied William the 
Conqueror to England, and to have received grants of land in or near 
Bristol, where he settled and became Propositus. He was succeeded in 
this office by his son Robert, who having rendered very important services 
to Henry, son of Queen Matilda, was rewarded by him by a grant of the 
Lordship of Berkeley and a new castle. Robert 1. founded the Abbey of 
St. Augustine, Bristol, now the cathedral. He and his descendants for 
several centuries were generous patrons of the church, and the effigies | 
which have been placed to their memory in the churches which they 
have founded or enriched are amongst the finest we possess in this 
county. 1 

Robert II., 3rd Lord Berkeley, took a prominent part in the struggle 
between the barons and King John which led to the grant of Magna 
Charta. Thomas II.. 6th Lord, fought at Evesham, and he and his son 
Maurice were amongst the prisoners at the fatal battle of Bannockburn. 
Thomas III., 8th Lord, received the fallen King Edward II. at Berkeley 
Castle in April, 1327, and treating him with courtesy and consideration, 
was ordered to withdraw to his manor house of Wotton-under-Edge. On 
September 27th Edward IL was murdered in the most barbarous manner

hy Gournay and Maltravers. The Abbots of Kingswood, Bristol, and 
Malmesbury refused burial to the dead sovereign, fearing the anger of 
Queen Isabella ; but John Thoky, Abbot of St. Peter's, Gloucester, who 
Avas more courageous, pitiful, and far-seeing, hastened to Berkeley and 
brought back the royal corpse in state to his abbey church, where it was 
buried on the north side of the presbytery. The tide of popular feeling 
turned, and the dead tyrant became a martyr. Thousands of pilgrims 
visited his grave at Gloucester, and riches poured in on the monks of 
St. Peter, enabling them to reconstruct nearly the whole of their church. 
Lord Berkeley was charged with the murder of the king, but was 
honourably acquitted. He and his son Maurice took part in the French 
wars of Edward III., and helped him to win Cressy and Calais. 

In 1417, owing to the death of Thomas IV., loth Lord, without male 
heirs, a period of litigation commenced between the families of Berkeley 
and Warwick, which only ended with the death of young Lord de Lisle at 
the battle of Nibley Green, March 20th, 1470. 

William, 12th Lord, the victor of Nibley Green, died childless in 1491, 
and left all his possessions to King Henry VII. and his heirs male. His 
brother Maurice was thus disinherited. 

On the death of Edward VI. the castle and manors reverted to Henry, 
17th Lord, having been alienated from the family for sixty-one years. 

At the commencement of the Civil War in 1642 Berkeley Castle was 
seized and garrisoned by the parliamentary troops, but it fell into the 
hands of King Charles after the capture of Bristol in 1643. In 1645 it 
was besieged by Colonel Rainsborough and surrendered after three days' 
struggle. The church was taken by assault and much injured. George, 
i8th Lord Berkeley, took no active part in the war, but his sympathies 
were evidently with the king. In 1646 he was impeached for high treason ; 
but the trial came to nothing, and the castle was restored to him with a 
breach in the keep which made it incapable of defence. 

The Lords of Berkeley have been fortunate in having one of the ablest 
family historians that ever lived — John Smyth of Nibley, steward of the 
Berkeley manors from 1596 to 1641. His two principal works, TIic Lives 
of the Berkeley's and The History of the Hundred of Berkeley have been 
printed by the Bristol and Gloucestershire Archaeological Society for 
its subscribing members, with the courteous permission of the late 
Lord Fitzhardinge, and may be obtained at the original subscription 

An interesting account of John Smyth and his works was contributed 
by his worthy successor, as steward and antiquary, the late Mr. James 
Herbert Cooke, to the Transactions of this Society in 1880, to whom and 
to the late Mr. G. T. Clark a deep debt of gratitude is due for the 
information to be obtained from their papers.

After luncheon the party proceeded in brakes to North Nibley, some 
five miles distant, to visit the Great House, by the courteous invitation of 
Colonel and Miss Noel. It rained heavily during the whole journey, and 
this deterred many from making the excursion ; but those who went had a 
delightful time in viewing the unique collection of family portraits and 
other heirlooms belonging to Colonel Noel, who kindly gave the visitors 
many interesting details with regard to them. 

The picturesque little village of North Nibley, lying on the north-west 
slopes of Nibley Knoll, is known in history from its proximity to Nibley 
Green, the scene of a conflict between William, 12th Lord Berkeley, 
and Lord Lisle in 1470, a year before the Battle of Tewkesbury. Lord 
Lisle was slain by an archer of Dean Forest, and his manor house at 
Wotton-under-Edge was sacked by the victors. England was so disturbed 
at this time by the rival claims of Lancastrians and Yorkists, that this 
private encounter between two noblemen and their armed retainers was 
almost unnoticed. 2 

On the supposition that Nibley was the birthplace of William Tyndale, 
the translator of the Bible into English, Nibley Knoll was selected in 1865 
as the site of his monument. ^

In Westridge Wood, to the south-west of the Knoll, there are two lines 
of entrenchments and mounds known as Blackenbury Camp, described by 
Mr. George Witts in his Archcsological Handbook of Gloucestershire, page 6, 
and a great number of pit dwellings. 

Nibley was the home for more than forty years of John Smyth, 
steward of Berkeley and historian of its lords and hundred. 

He owned two houses in this parish, one of which, Smallcombe Court, 
he built in i6og, and gave to his son George in his lifetime. Over the 
front entrance he placed the following letters : — 

Mr. Jortin destroyed this house in 1807, but left the doorway standing. 

A view of Nibley House, occupied by John Smyth and his descendants, 
is given in Atkyns. It was taken down in 1763 by George Smyth, the 
great-grandson of the historian, and he built on its site "The Great 
House," in which Colonel Noel now lives. ^ A view of the present house 
IS given in Rudder. 

The collection of family portraits in the Great House was described 
by their possessor, Colonel Noel. It is needful, therefore, only to mention 
a few of the more interesting and the names of the painters to whom they 
are attributed. 

In the drawing-room: Miss Vernatti, as "Diana"; Lord and Lady 
Gainsborough and three Ladies Noel; Lord Anne Hamilton, Mary his 
wife, and two other studies by Hogarth ; Lord and Lady Gainsborough, 
by Godfrey Kneller ; Hon. Mrs. William Noel and Hon. Louisa Noel, by 
Beechy ; Lady Jane Stanley, by Sir Thomas Lawrence ; Duke of Richmond, 
by Romney ; Ladies E. and S. Noel, by Sir P. Lely, &c. 

In the hall : Charles I., James I., Anne of Denmark, Elizabeth, 
Queen of Bohemia, &c., and many old Dutch portraits on panel by 
Miraveldt. By the kindness of Colonel Noel, we are enabled to give six 
illustrations of this fine series of Vernatti portraits from an interesting 
monograph which he has lately written. ^ 

In the dining-room: Henrietta Maria; Juliana, Lady Campden, by 
Lely ; Henry Noel, 6th Earl of Gainsborough ; the Duke of Bolton ; 
the Earl of Pembroke ; the Duke of Parma ; Elizabeth, Queen of 
Bohemia, &c. 

There are also many miniatures, some pieces of furniture of great 
artistic and historical interest, and excellent china. 

The party were most kindly and hospitably entertained to tea by Miss

Noel. The church, which is dedicated to St. Martin, and was formerly a 
chapel attached to Wotton, consists of a nave with south aisle, west tower, 
and north porch, and a chancel which seems to have been almost rebuilt 
in the restoration of 1866. Above the chajicel arch is a sanctus bell-cot. 
The nave has a fifteenth-century arcade of five pointed arches with octagonal 
piers and capitals. The flat perpendicular roof springs from corbels with 
interesting carvings. There are monuments in the church to John Smyth, 
who died in 1640, and to Grace, his first wife, who died in 1609. Leaving 
North Nibley, the party were driven to Berkeley Road Station, where they 
left by their respective trains for Bristol and Gloucester. ^ 

The arrangements for the meeting were, as usual, most carefully made, 
and reflected great credit upon those who took a leading part. Among these 
were Mr. F. F. Fox (President of the Council), Mr. G. M. Currie (Hon. 
General Treasurer), and Canon Bazeley (Hon. General Secretary). Much 
regret was expressed at the absence through illness of Mr. John E. 
Pritchard, the energetic Hon. Secretary for Bristol. A special debt of 
gratitude was due to Canon Bazeley for the most interesting programme, 
and to Dr. Oscar Clarke for the pictures which illustrated it. 


At the Annual Summer Meeting, 

At Cheltenham and Worcester, 

Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, July 11th, 12th, 
and 13th. 1905. 

The Annual Summer Meeting commenced at Cheltenham, 
and the opening meeting was held in the Town Hall, when 
Mr. F. F. Fox presided in the absence of the Dean of 
Hereford, who wrote regretting that important business kept 
him away. There was a good muster of the members, 
amongst those present being Mr. F. F. Fox (President of 
the Council), Bishop Mitchinson (President), the Rev. 
C. S. Taylor (Hon. Editor), Mr. G. M. Currie (Hon. 
Treasurer), Canon Bazeley (Hon. General Secretary), 
Mr. John E. Pritchard (Hon. Secretary, Bristol), Sir 
Brook Kay, Bart., together with many ladies. 

Canon Bazeley (the Hon. General Secretary) presented 
the report of the Council for the past year as follows : — 

Council Report, 1904-5. 

The Council of the Bristol and Gloucestershire Archaeological Society 
present the following report for the year ending July iith, 1905. There 
are at present 455 annual members, 92 life members, and 3 honorary 
members on the Society's list, giving a total strength of 550 members. 

The income of the Society for the year ending December 31st, 1904, 
including a balance of /208 13s. 4d. on January ist, 1904, was 
;^528 OS. I id., and the expenditure was /373 os. od., leaving a balance 
of OS. I id. in the Treasurer's hands on December 31st, 1904. From 

this balance should be deducted the cost of the Society's Transactions for 

Council Report. 


1904, the first part of which is in the member's hands, and the second part 
is nearly ready for issue. Besides this balance, the Society has a funded 
capital of £S^2 3s. 8d. consols, worth at the present price about 
^748 IS. iid. 

The Council would again point out that the Transactions are only 
issued to those members who have paid their subscriptions for the respec- 
tive year, and that a great deal of unnecessary work falls on the honorary 
officers of the Society by subscriptions being allowed to remain in arrear. 

The Society has held two annual meetings since the presentation of the 
last report at Hereford, under the presidency of the Dean of Hereford,, 
on July i2th, 13th, and 14th, 1904, and at Berkeley on June 6th, 1905. 
The proceedings at Hereford are duly chronicled in the twenty-seventh 
volume of the Transactions, and a valuable paper on " Some Gloucestershire 
MSS. in Hereford Cathedral Library," by Mr. Langton Browne, an outcome 
of the Society's visit, appears in the same volume. An account of the 
Berkeley meeting will be given in vol. xxviii. 

The Council wishes to express its obligations to Lord Fitzhardinge 
for allowing the members to visit his historic castle on a day of the 
week on which it is not as a rule open to visitors ; and to thank Colonel 
Noel for his very hospitable reception of the Society at the Great House, 
North Nibley. 

The attention of the Council has been called to the dangerous con- 
dition of the Berkeley Chapel, in Berkeley Church, where the members 
were most kindly received by the vicar, the Rev. Canon Stackhouse. 
They trust that no time will be lost in strengthening the foundations 
and repairing the screen and the vaulting. 

The Council, in accordance with the wish of the Bristol Local 
Committee, have gladly arranged to rent a room at the Literary and 
Philosophic Club, Clifton, and have placed there a set of the Society's 
publications. There have been, moreover, some gifts of books which it is 
hoped may form the nucleus of a branch of the Society's library at the 
Bristol headquarters. 

The Council regret that, owing to the illness of the printer selected to 
print the Ilhistrated List of Gloucestershire Church Plate, and his consequent 
resignation of the work, the issue has been long [delayed. They hope, 
however, that it will be in the hands of those members who are entitled 
to it, and of others who subscribe for it, this autumn. The Council again, 
would express their gratitude to the Rev. J. T. Evans, Rector of Stow-on- 
the-Wold, who has edited the work for the Society. 

The report of the Committee appointed to describe sthe Bristol and 
Gloucestershire effigies has been continued in the|Society's Trawsac/'/ows, 
and the Council feel that a debt of gratitude is owed to Miss I. M. 
Roper for her indefatigable labours in connection with the Bristol

•examples, which have led to such excellent results. It is proposed to 
issue with vol. xxviii. some illustrations of Bristol effigies to insert in 
Miss Roper's papers which appear in vols. xxvi. and xxvii. Certain 
rural deaneries have not yet completed their reports, and the Council 
would gladly accept further offers of assistance. 

The Roman pavements at Great Witcombe have suffered wilful damage 
at the hands of visitors, and the attention of the owner, Mr. W. Hicks- 
Beach, having been cal'ed to the matter, he has taken measures to 
preserve them. It is a strange infatuation that leads persons, not always 
of the poorer classes, to break up beautiful mosaic patterns in order to 
possess themselves dishonestly of a few tesserae which cannot possibly 
in themselves have any interest or intrinsic value. 

The long barrow, known as Hetty Peglar's Tump, at Uley was some 
twenty years ago placed under the protection of the Government by the 
•owner, Colonel Kingscote, and a grant was made for its repair and for 
railing it in. Again, through the depredations of foolish individuals, 
mischief has been done to the main passage, and the iron railings require 
attention. The Council have asked the Rev. S. E. Bartleet, Mr. Phelps, and 
the General Secretary to act as a Restoration Committee ; and application 
has been made to the Board of Works, through Mr. Stafford Howard, for 
a small grant. 

The loan Magic Lantern Slide Collection of the Society has been 
considerably increased this year by gifts from Mr. Dugdale, Dr. Oscar 
Clark, Colonel Routh and others, and also by purchases. There is now 
a fine series of Gloucester, Tewkesbury, Worcester and Ripple misereres, 
to which the Council would be glad to add slides of the Bristol and 
Malvern examples. A circular has been issued to members giving a 
preliminary list and the terms for hire. 

Evening meetings of the Society have been held during the past winter 
at Bristol, Gloucester, Cheltenham, and Tewkesbury, and many interesting 
lectures and papers have been contributed. 

The Council hope that the forthcoming visit of the Society to Wor- 
cester may lead to steps being taken for transcribing the episcopal 
registers, as far as they relate to Bristol and Gloucestershire, and printing 
them for the use of students of local ecclesiastical history. 

The Rev. A. C. Douglas, Rector of Hatherop and Diocesan Religious 
Inspector, has very kindly offered his help in the matter, and the Council 
trust that his example will be followed by others. 

By arrangement with the British Record Society, six sheets of Glou- 
cestershire Inquisitions post-mortem and indices of Gloucester wills are 
issued annually with the Society's Tvansactions. The importance of these 
records is fully realised by all students of local history and genealogy. 

The excavations at Caerwent are being continued under the direction

Council Report. 


•of a committee consisting partly of members of this Society and Council 
and the sum of £10 has been contributed from the funds of this Society 
towards the expenses to be incurred this year. Two previous grants have 
been given. 

The Council regret the loss by death of two of its members : of 
Mr. Waller, whose pain'^taking labours in connection with the repair 
of Gloucester Cathedral and of a large number of parochial churches 
extending over more than half a century needs only to be known to be 
appreciated ; and of Mr. Godfrey Seys, who as Local Secretary at 
Chepstow has rendered very valuable assistance to the Society on 
several occasions. 

The Council has held six meetings, three at Gloucester and three at 
Bristol, and desire to express their obligations to the Lord Mayor of 
Bristol for the use of the old Council Chamber and to the Guardians 
•of the Poor for Bristol for the use of the old Court Room at St. Peter's 

The Council desire to nominate for election the Rev. A. W. Douglas 
as Local Secretary for Fairford. and the President of Council, the Vice- 
Presidents of the Society, the General Treasurer, the General Secretary, 
the Secretary for Bristol, and the Local Secretaries for re-election. 

The following members of the Council retire by rotation, but are 
eligible for re-election : The Rev. O. P. Wardell-Yarburgh, the Rev. W. 
Symonds, Dr. Oscar Clark, and Messrs. A. T. Martin, A. E. Hudd, 
F. Were, F. J. CuUis, A. C. Fryer, and St. Clair Baddeley. 

On the motion of Colonel W. F. N. Noel, seconded by 
Mr. W. M. Llewellyn, the report was adopted. 

Colonel Duke proposed the re-election of the Council for 
the ensuing year, with the addition of the name of Mr. 
McMuRTRiE. This was seconded by Mr. E. J. Swann, who 
thanked the Council for the great interest they had taken 
in the Bristol district. 

A vote of thanks was accorded to Mr. F. F. Fox for 
presiding at that meeting, and reference was made to the 
liard work he liad put in on behalf of the Society, and his 
great interest in it. 

Mr. F. F. Fox, in acknowledging the vote, thanked them . 
for the support which they had given to the Council. 

In proposing the Right Rev. Bishop Mitchinson as the 
president for the ensuing year, Mr. F. F. Fox said that he 
was the Master of Pembroke College, Oxford, and spoke of

his sincere and enthusiastic love for archaeology. With his 
own hand he had photographed very many of the monastic 
buildings in the kingdom. He thought that under his 
leadership the Society would be greatly enriched by the 
learning' he showed and the enthusiasm he would infuse 
into it. This was seconded by Mr. Dyer Edwardes and 

The president then proceeded to deliver his address, 
which is printed in this part of the Transactions. 

Mr. Dyer Edwardes proposed a vote of thanks to the 
president for his address. Mr. J. J. Sawyer seconded the 
resolution, which was cordially adopted. 

After lunch the members started in carriages for Badg- 
worth, where they were received at the church by the vicar 
(the Rev. J. H. Hodges) and Major Selwyn Payne, while 
Mr. Prothero gave most helpful information about the 

This church, which Rudder asserts is dedicated to St. Mary, but to 
which the dedication in the name of the Holy Trinity is also attributed, 
consists of a nave with porch and north chapel (St. Margaret's) and a 
chancel. As it stands, it is, with the exception of the chancel, mainly 
of fourteenth-century date, and it is conjectured that the head over the 
west window of the north chapel is that of Edward II., and the 
knight and lady near it those of Gilbert de Clare (d. 1314) and Maud, 
his wife. 

The chief glory, of the church consists in the windows and door of the 
north chapel, which are probably the most magnificent specimens of ball- 
flower ornament in existence. The flower itself is of the usual type, being 
like the little bells on a harness. The mouldings are of extreme richness. 
The present chancel replaces one which existed in the early sixties, and 
which was Georgian in character. There was no east window, and the east 
wall inside was covered from top to bottom by a large piece of tapestry 
representing Moses striking the rock(?), the removal of which from the 
church is much to be deplored. In front of it stood the old altar now in 
St, Margaret's Chapel 

An account of Badgworth and its church, by the late vicar, the 
Rev. A. W. Ellis, M.A., will be found in the Transactions, vol. xiii., 
pp. 63-68. 

From Badgworth the party journeyed to Brockworth, where, under 
the guidance of the vicar (the Rev. J. H. Seabrook), the church was 



inspected, while the Rev. S. E. Bartleet furnished those present with some 
particulars, both of the sacred edifice and the Court, which was also 
visited, by the kind permission of Mr. J. Friday. 

The original church — or, it would be more accurate to say, the first 
church here of which anything survives — was Consecrated about 1142, and 
of that there remam the two beautiful arches supporting the tower, and 
perhaps the font. 

This church probably consisted of nave and chancel only ; and the 
present plan, with its north isle and south chapel and porch, is an example 
of the development and wholesale alterations so commonly made in the 
fourteenth century. Before 1847 the tower had a very picturesque hipped 
roof of a type very common in Normandy and very rare in England. 
It seems, from the drawings that remain of it, to have surmounted a 
low tower, the windows of which had been altered in the fourteenth 

The very curious cross in the churchyard seems to be the head of the 
churchyard cross. If so, it belongs to an earlier date than most of those 
that now remain, except perhaps in Cornwall. 

An excellent paper on the parish and church of Brockworth, by the 
Rev. S. E. Bartleet, M.A., will be found in the Transactions, vol. vii., 
pp. 131-171- 

The drive was then continued to Witcombe Park, where Mrs. Hicks- 
Beach kindly invited the party to tea. Here were to be seen a number 
of antiquities found during the excavations at the Roman villa some few 
years since. These included a bronze statue and various fibulae, bone 
pins, pottery, and also from the same district a stone axe of the Neolithic 
period. A number of blue tapestries were also admired. 

On the return journey a stop was made for a short time in order to 
afford a brief inspection of the Church of St. Mary, Great Witcombe, a 
little church which has not hitherto been noticed in the Transactions of the 
Society, but which has features of much interest. 

It retains substantially its Norman nave and chancel, though the 
windows have been altered and enlarged. The north aisle was added 
in the fifteenth century ; the arcade is of the same date. (This arcade, 
as so often happens, somewhat overshoots the older chancel wall. Did 
the builders intend to pull down and re-model the Norman church ? 
Most likely. They were seldom influenced by feelings of veneration 
for the work of their predecessors.) The tower, containing six bells, 
is modern, replacing a wooden one with a spire. 

The Norman chancel arch springs from very low pilasters. Across 
it the fifteenth-century builders put the customary rood-loft, perhaps 
reached by wooden steps (all attemipts to find stone ones in the wall 
have hitherto failed). 


Transactions for the Year 1905. 

The rood-beam 1 remains in situ, with mortices for the rood and 
figures of SS. Mary and John. On either side of this rood small 
windows Avere pierced in the wall behind it to light the loft, and the 
ceiling of one bay of the nave is specially ornamented to serve as a 
canopy to the loft, being separated from the rest of the roof by a very 
dainty little inverted brattishing. 

A few fragments of old glass remain. The font, an ancient one 
from Lasborough, has lately been brought to the church by Mr. 
W. F. Hicks-Beach. 

We are greatly indebted to Dr. Oscar Clark for so kindly photo- 
graphing the church. 

Early on Wednesday members left Cheltenham in beautiful weather 
for Worcester, in order to visit the cathedral, which was for nearly nine 
centuries the mother church both of Bristol and of Gloucestershire east 
of the Severn. Moreover, apart from the ecclesiastical interest of the 
cathedral, there is much in the city itself which should have an especial 
interest, not merely for antiquaries, but also for historical students. No 
place suffered more considerably or frequently from civil wars and border 
feuds along the marches, but it prides itself on the loyal appellation of 
"The Faithful City," as it was the first in which a mayor proclaimed 
Charles II. at the Restoration. Arrangements had been made whereby on 
the arrival of the train a service of tramcars should convey the party to 
the cathedral, and as many of those present made their first acquaintance 
with Worcester, they were interested in watching the street spectacles 
along the route. The cathedral gave particular gratification, as, although 
the hand of the restorer is evident at many points, there are curious 
associations which are well v»'orthy the attention of a learned body to 

When the party had assembled outside the cathedral, at the west end, 
the President (Bishop ]Mitchinson), proceeded to point out some of the 
details, remarking as he looked towards the great window that there was 
astonishingly little that required comment, as a great deal of what they 
saw was new. The present west window was new, and a great deal of the 
other work was new also. There was formerly no west door, as the great 
north door admitted the people who lived around to come and make their 
devotions. The monks obtained access to the cathedral through the 
cloisters. As they passed round the e.xterior of the building the}^ would

observe the nave was more or less Decorated, and the windows were 
Decorated. The choir was what it professed to be, Early English. The 
east end was a peculiarly beautiful composition, purely restoration or 
reconstruction. Still it was the east end of an Early English church, and 
he did not know that a better could have been evolved. The real interest 
of the exterior of Worcester Cathedral was when they got to the monastic 
buildings, which were on the south side, unlike Gloucester, where they 
were on the opposite side. The President then invited the party to walk 
round the building, remarking that they could use their own observation. 
They did not need a sermon from him at every turn, but in the cloisters he 
would draw their attention to what remained of the monastic buildings- 

The main feature of the monastic buildings, the refectory, afforded 
scope for some interesting observations and suggestions. It is at present 
the King's School, and the President said they would be certain to like 
poking their noses inside, and he was certain the boys would welcome the 
intrusion. If his flock gave him permission he would act as the emissary, 
and ascertain if they might inspect the room. The Rev. W. O. Chappel, 
the head master of the school, expressed his pleasure at receiving the 
archaeologists, who very much admired the singularly beautiful interior. 
The President explained that when Henry VIII. became possessed of the 
monastery he presented the refectory to the school, and it had been used 
as a school since. The oak panelling was new. In a few particulars 
furnished by the head master, he spoke of the destruction of some of the 
details, which might be due to Cromwell's soldiers, who were billeted 
there. The room was about the same date as Westminster Hall, and the 
lines were similar though smaller. The boys, who had been busy with 
their lessons when the archaeologists entered, seemed diverted at the 
intrusion, which they no doubt considered to be a pleasant interruption to 
conjugations and inflections. To those of us who knew that Worcester is 
" Helstonleigh " of Tlie CJianiimgs, the visit had a special interest. 

In the cloisters Canon B.azeley was the principal spokesman, pointing 
out the beautiful groining. The Jesse tree and its development, and our 
Lord's mother being crowned queen by the three Persons of the Trinity 
are the chief subjects. In the cloisters the attention of the visitors were 
arrested by the memorial stone with the sole inscription " Miserrimus," 
which probably covers the remains of a broken-hearted minor canon, a 
non-juror, who, losing his appointment for conscience sake, was reduced 
to poverty, and asked that " most miserable " should be the only reminder 
of his place of interment. The Chapter House was inspected, and soon 
after the Commandery (St. Wulstan's Hospital) was visited, this completing 
the programme before luncheon. 

In the afternoon the party again repaired to the cathedral, now visiting 
the interior, with Canon Bazeley acting as guide. He had contributed 

22 Transactions for the Year 1905. 

historical and descriptive notes of the edifice, and these were most helpful 
during the visit to the splendid interior. 

After the victory of the Saxons at Dyrham in 577, the lower Severn 
vale was allotted by the conquerors to a people called the Hwiccas, who 
had taken a prominent part in its conquest. 

Their territory appears to have extended from the Forest of Arden, in 
Warwickshire, to Bath ; and from the Malvern Hills to Wychwood, 
beyond the Cotteswolds, in Oxfordshire. 

For half a century they enjoyed more or less independence under th 
West Saxon kings ; but after the accession of the heathen Penda in 626, of 
their own free will, or by conquest, their land became part of the great 
Mercian kingdom. If any Christianity existed here at that time it v/as the 
religion of British slaves, Thor and Woden were the gods of their Saxon 
masters ; it was not until Penda was well stricken in years, or had been 
iilain by Oswy at the Winwaed in 655, that missionaries from Northumbria 
md lona were permitted to stir the smouldering embers of the true religion 
ind claim the Mercian land once more for Christ. 

We owe more than we have hitherto allowed to Oswy's grandson, 
Osric, whose dust sleeps at Gloucester in his chantry chapel by the 
high altar of the church of which he was the first founder. He it was 
who established mission centres in the Huiccian land, where he ruled as 
viceroy under Ethelred his kinsman ; and when, in 680, the Synod of 
Hedfield had parcelled out from Lichfield a new see in the Severn vale, he 
procured the election of Tatfrith, a pupil of the saintly Hilda, and fixed 
his bjshop's stool at Hwiccan Ceaster. But Tatfrith died ere he could be 
consecrated, and Boisil, probably another monk of Whitby, was hallowed 
as the bishop by Theodore ; again, when ten years later Boisil became 
infirm, St. Wilfrid laid his hands on Oftor, a third pupil of St. Hilda, and 
called him to rule as bishop at Worcester. 

The cathedral where Boisil and Oftor served God with their " farailv " 
of monks was no doubt of wood, and as unpretending as the cathedral of 
one of our own missionary bishops in the far north-west of Canada, or in 
Mashonaland, south of the Zambesi. 

It remained for St, Oswald, the friend and successor of St. Dunslan, 
in the See of Worcester, 960-992, to build a church of stone. The 
dedication of the earlier church, as at Gloucester, was to St. Peter. 
St. Oswald built his in honour also of our Lord's mother. Elsewhere the 
secular canons were forcibly dispossessed : under the gentler rule of 
Oswald the Worcester canons accepted the Benedictine rule and became 

Of Oswald's church no traces remain. Worcestershire was harried 
by the Danes in 1041, and the new church was given to the flames. Yet, 
phoenix-like, it rose once more and lasted till 1084, when Wulstan, the only 




Saxon bishop who had retained his see under the Norman conquerors, 
■commenced the erection of a third cathedral. 

Of Wulstan's church there remains intact the beautiful crypt in which 
he held a synod of his clergy in 1092. As at Gloucester, this crypt gives 
lis the form of the original church. It was cruciform, with a semicircular 
apse surrounded by an ambulatory. From the transepts extended eastward 
two chapels with crypts : the one on the south, with its richly-carved arch, 
is still preserved ; the other on the north has been destroyed. Perhaps as 
at Gloucester there were projecting apsidal chapels ; but these, if they 
existed, have been blocked up in comparatively modern times. 

In 1088 Wulstan's church was sufficiently advanced to be consecrated. 
Perhaps the choir, the transept, and the cloisters v/ere complete. The 
crypt below the refectory and the slype are of Wulstan's date. 

Then during the rule of Wulstan's successors, as of Serlo's at Gloucester, 
the building of the nave went on without interruption, and as the twelfth 
century passed into middle life the style changed. The two Vv^estern arcades 
and the vaulting of the west end of the south aisle are probably the work 
of Bishop Roger, son of Robert, Earl of Gloucester, and a grandson of 
King Henry I. The chapter house, the western slype, and other work, 
mercifully preserved here and there for us by mediaeval restorers, are good 
•examples of Transitional Norman. The late twelfth-century builders used 
Bredon oolite, and the grey limestone from the trias beds at Higley in 
alternate courses. The effect is something like what we see at Pisa and 

Wulstan died in 1094, More than a century later he was canonised by 
Innocent III. because works of healing were wrought at his tomb through 
faith in the sanctity of his relics. For many years pilgrims crowded to his 
shrine, and so great was the sum of their offerings that William de Blois, 
bishop from 12 18-1236, was enabled to rebuild and transform the eastern 
limb in all its now restored beauty. Above and beyond the crypt he 
constructed a choir, north and south-eastern transepts and a lady chapel 
in the purest style of Early English, rich in sculptured foliage, in deeply 
cut mouldings and shafts of Purbeck marble. His successor, Walter de 
Cantelupe, 1237-1266, continued and completed the work ; and heir 
efifigies, as indeed is fitting, lie in front of our Lady's altar in the midst 
of the beautiful work, which in itself would have been their lasting 

For awhile the Worcester builders laid aside their tools and rested : 
then in the reign of Edward II. the work began again. The seven 
eastern bays of the north arcade of the nave, and the north aisle were 
rebuilt in the Decorated style. The Guesten Hall, now alas! a ruin, 
was also finished. Thien the architectural style changed once more : 
and Perpendicular, which we claim to have originated at Gloucester,

was used in the reconstruction of the seven eastern bays of the southern 
arcade of the nave and the completion of the triforium and clerestory 
of the third and fourth bays from the west on the north side ; the 
refectory, now the college school, was rebuilt in 1372, the great cen- 
tral tower in 1374, and the vaulting of the nave was completed in 

Henry Wakefield, who was bishop from 1375 to 1394 went on with 
the work of restoration and built the north porch. He was buried, as 
great builders are wont to be, in the nave which he had completed. 
The fabric had now attained its permanent form and beauty. 

Many years later, in 1503, Arthur, Prince of Wales, died at Ludlow, 
and his father and his broken-hearted mother buried him at Worcester, 
erecting a chantry chapel, still beautiful, notwithstanding its desecration, 
and rich beyond the telling in figures of angels, saints, and kings, and 
in royal badges. 

Had Arthur lived to be king instead of Henry, the subsequent history 
of England miight have been altogether different. The time would have 
come in any case when the rule of a foreign potentate would have 
become unbearable to a free people, and societies of monks and nuns 
would have been dissolved or reform.ed, but at least we should have 
been spared the disgrace of Katharine's divorce ; and a reformation of 
our national church would have been brought about under the influence 
of the " new learning " by gentler and purer methods. 

For eight hundred and sixty years the closest connection existed 
between Worcester and, that part of Gloucestershire which lies on the 
left bank of the Severn. In 1540 this connection was abruptly broken 
by Henry VIII. 's creation of a new see for Gloucester; and although, 
for a brief period, the two sees were reunited in the person of Bishop 
John Hooper, they were quickly severed again, to remain independent 
of one another to the present time, and probably for ever. 

The importance of the episcopal registers, stored in the Edgar Tower 
at Worcester, to Bristol and Gloucestershire students of mediaeval local 
history cannot be overrated. Surely the time has come when a branch 
society of our own should be formed to abstract and print from these 
registers all that relates to our own county. 

The exterior of Worcester Cathedral, if we except the beautiful central 
late fourteenth-century tower, is plain and somewhat uninteresting. Half 
a century ago the walls were almost ruinous, and the sculptured figures 
time-worn beyond recognition. The princely generosity of the late Lord 
Dudley and the carefully repairing, nay, reconstructing hands of Perkins 
and Scott, the architects, have removed the unsightly accretions of 
seventeenth- and eighteenth-century botchers, and have given us back the 
sacred building as it was four hundred years ago. The great east* and

west windows, the north and south windows of the transepts, and many 
more are quite modern, but none the less pleasing to an unprejudiced eye. 

We enter by the north porch, and a pleasing vista of columns, arches, 
and vaulting in well-nigh every style of Gothic architecture, yet har- 
moniously combined, greets the fortunate visitor. 

The nave consists of nine bays, the two westernmost are Transitional 
Norman, the remaining seven on the north Decorated, on the south Early 
Perpendicular. The vaulting of the south aisle near the west is late 
twelfth century, the rest late fourteenth. The south wall with its semi- 
circular headed blank arches is Norman, and is a relic of the early 
twelfth-century builders. The removal of the stone screen and of the 
organ which rested on it is an example which we might well follow at 
Gloucester. The days are .past when the view of the eastern limb should 
be thus obstructed. 

The nave is rich in monuments of ancient men of note, ecclesiastical 
and lay. The plan so kindly lent to us by Mr. Murray from his un- 
surpassed Handbook to Western Cathedrals shows us their position and 
tells us whose they are. 

We pass into the transepts, and here are quaintly blended in the 
walling the marks of successive changes: the Early Norman, to be 
recognised by the uncoursed rubble work ; the Transitional by the 
ashlar or alternating courses, green and white ; the Early English by 
the broken trefoil heads of an arcade high up on the western wall, and 
the Perpendicular facing by the frequent use of red sandstone. 

The crypt, with its forest of columns and its innumerable stilted arches, 
consisted originally of central nave divided into four walks or gangways, 
and a double ambulatory. The eastern part of the ambulatory has been 
blocked by sepulchral vaults, and it is impossible to ascertain whether 
it had apsidal chapels or not. Moreover, several of the arches are now 
filled with solid masonry, as at Gloucester, to support the superstructure 
of the choir. The general effect, however, is very pleasing, and has been 
■ likened to that of the Moorish mosque at Cordova. The eastern limb of 
the cathedral is uniformly Early English, but evidences are forthcoming 
that the base of the great Perpendicular central tower, reconstructed 
about 1374, is Norman. 

As we enter the south aisle of the choir from the transept we detect 
Norman or Transitional work on either side. The Chapel of St. John 
the Baptist, restored by Lord Beauchamp in 1895, was transformed from 
Norman into Early English by the early thirteenth-century bailders, but 
its crypt was preserved intact. 

The choir is of five wide bays with octagonal piers and detached 
Purbeck shafts. The brass rings surrounding some of these shafts 
were given by Bishop Giffard, 1268-1301. He was a member of the 


Transactions for the Year 1905. 

Gloucestershire family who took such a leading part in the civil war 
between Henry III. and the barons. His effigy, and the effigy of a 
kinswoman of his, a daughter of Lord Giffard of Brimpsfield, lie below 
the chantry chapel of Prince Arthur, on its south side. The choir 
fittings are for the most part modern, but the original fourteenth-century 
misereres remain, forming a most interesting set of thirty-seven subjects. 

In the centre of the presbytery, on a sixteenth-century altar-tomb, lies 
the effigy of King John, ^he earliest regal effigy in England. When he 
was dying at Newark Castle, in 1216, John besought those around him 
that his body might be laid between the shrines of St. Oswald and 
St. Wulstan, at Worcester. He hoped that notwithstanding his sins his 
body might be unmolested by the evil one when thus protected. At the 
Reformation the commissioners of Henry destroyed the shrines and buried 
the bones of the saints, leaving the king's tomb standing alone, but intact. 
Mr. Murray has very kindly lent the Society the illustration of King 
John's tomb, which forms a second frontispiece to his Handbook, and also 
a beautiful sketch of Prince Arthur's Chapel, looking eastward. We gladly 
acknowledge his courtesy, with many thanks. The figure of King John 
is now gaudy with gilt, but originally the robes were coloured appro- 
priately. As, however, the tombs of monarchs are held to be royal 
property, certain officials, acting in the name of the late Queen about 
forty years ago, substituted the gilt grandeur. Mr. Dauncy, of Gloucester, 
produced a pamphlet in which the original state of the effigy was described. 

The hagiology of Prince Arthur's Chapel deserves careful study. It 
is said that the larger figures at the east end, including St. George and 
perhaps St. Edward, St. Edmund and Henry VI., were damaged by the 
soldiers of Cromwell after the Battle of Worcester ; but Green thinks 
that they were nearly covered with plaster and the projecting parts broken 
off in the time of Elizabeth to form a level surface for the queen's arms. 
I'oor Oliver has had more than his meed of blame ; it is quite unfair to 
make him responsible for all the barbarities of the ages which preceded 
and succeeded the Civil War as well as for his own. 

In the north aisle of the choir there is a small oriel window which once 
gave light to the sacrist's lodging. 

The arcading of the eastern transepts and lady chapel is very 
beautiful, the sculptures being most quaint. The subjects in the south- 
eastern transept are somewhat appalling : Death, Purgatory, Resurrection, 
Judgment, Hell. Elsewhere they are more mundane : a queen instructing 
an architect, a bishop [probably William de Blois] making an offering Of 
a church, and many strange birds and reptiles. 

The tombs in this part of the church, ancient and modern, are many 
of them very fine, but some confusion has been caused by the restorers 
removing them from their original position. 



The walls of the cloisters are Norman. Perpendicular vaulting was 
substituted for the original Norman wooden roof about 1372. The 
carved bosses are very fine, especially in the south walk. On one is 
depicted the coronation of the Virgin by the JJ-oly Trinity; and a long 
string of kings, with foliage, seems to form a Jesse tree or genealogical 
table of our Lord's ancestors. 

The western slype is a fine example of Transitional Norman archi- 
tecture, and is of the same date as the adjoining part of the nave of 
the church. 

The lavatory is in the west cloister walk, where also was the dormitory 
or dorter. The fine refectory or frater, on the south side of the cloisters, 
is now used as a college school. There is a fine Norman doorway leading 
into College Green at the south-east angle of the cloister. In the east 
walk are doorways leading into the chapter house and the eastern slype. 
In the north walk, on a stone seat, is a time-worn effigy, said to represent 
Alexander Neckam, the famous abbot of Cirencester, who wrote treatises 
on the Mariner's Compass, Chess, the Silkworm, &c. 

Over this walk is a long room containing the cathedral library and 
numerous fragments of ancient sculpture.

tion with that king. It was the great gate of the priory. 

The Commandery, in Sidbury, was formerly the Hospital of St.

In the corn market is a house in which tradition says Charles II. 
took refuge after the Battle of Worcester. It bears the motto —

Some of the members of the Society remained in the choir for evensong, 
and admired the work carried out some years ago by Earl Dudley. 

At night there was a conversazione in the Town Hall, Cheltenham. 
A short address on the "Early History ot Cheltenham" was given by 
Mr. John Sawyer, followed by a most interesting lantern lecture on the 
miserere seats at Worcester and Gloucester by Dr. Oscar W. Clarke, of 

Early on Thursday morning members and friends assembled at the 
parish church of St. Mary, where they were received by the rector (Canon 


Transactions for the Year 1905. 

Roxby), who invited Mr. J. Sawyer to make some remarks on the history 
and architecture of the building, and he told a most interesting story. 

It is in connection with a church that Cheltenham first appears on the 
written page of history. At a council held at Cloveshoe in 803 there was 
a dispute between Deneberht, Bishop of Worcester, and Wulf heard. 
Bishop of Hereford, respecting the food-rent from estates belonging to a 
minster at Cheltenham ; and Deneberht substantiated his claim by proof 
that his predecessors had received the food-rent thirty years previously. 
A church therefore existed in Cheltenham in 773, or about two centuries 
after the Battle of Dyrham opened the way into Gloucestershire for the 
tread of English feet. 

The next glimpse we get of a church in Cheltenham is in the Domesday 
Record : " King Edward held Chinteneham . . . One hide and a half 
belongs to the church. Reinbald holds it . . . The priest has two 
plough teams." Rembald was one of the favourites of the Confessor, and 
had come to England with his royal master when, on the death of 
Harthacnut, England was tired of foreign rulers and, in the language of 
the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle, " all folk chose Edward to King." On the 
death of Reinbald, a portion of his inheritance became the property of the 
church at Cirencester, wherein, according to Leland, he was buried. In 
1 1 17 Henry I. enlarged the church and conventual buildings at Ciren- 
cester, and converted the College into an Abbey, which he endowed with 
"all the estate of Reinbald the priest, in lands and churches, and . . . the 
church of Cheltenham, with the land thereof, and the mill, and the 
chapels, and all other appurtenances to the said church belonging." 

With this royal grant of the Rectory of Cheltenham to Cirencester 
Abbey the history of the existing church at Cheltenham begins. For 
Norman -vvork we must look at the two ends of the nave. Except the 
doorway and window the west end is part of the original edifice. The 
billet-pattern string-course and the flat, plain buttresses are characteristic 
Norman work. So tuo are the piers of the crossing, with their square 
abaci, crudely-fashioned capitals, and shallow bases. The width and 
position of the buttresses at the west end of the nave show that in the 
Norman buildings there were north and south aisles, which, however, 
were widened in the fourteenth century. 

Only two years after Cirencester Abbey was consecrated William of 
Sens was rebuilding the choir of Canterbury Cathedral in the Early 
English style. The builders at Cheltenham seem to have felt the 
influence of the coming Gothic development, for in the lower portion of 
the tower, particularly in the east and west arches of the crossing, we 
see the style which English church builders began to adopt after the 
Romanesque had been in use for nearly a hundred years. The use of the 
pointed arch for constructional purposes led to its adoption for windows. 



and one variety of this design is seen in the windows of the tower imme- 
diately above the roofs of the main building. Early in the thirteenth 
century, when it was completed, the church consisted of the present 
nave and transepts, two narrow aisles, a g,hancel, and a tower and 

Scarcely had the work been finished when a rebuilding began, possibly 
prompted by the architectural zeal which in the latter part of the 
thirteenth century was, among other places, finding expression in the 
Franciscan and Dominican Friaries being planted at Gloucester. The 
nave and aisles, with the solitary exception of the western wall of the nave, 
were pulled down, as also was the steeple, then little more than a pyramidal 
roof. The nave arcades were reconstructed upon exactly the old lines, 
which were determined by the west wall and the untouched piers of the 
crossing. The aisles were considerably widened, nearly obliterating the 
cruciform plan of the church by diminishing the projection of the tran- 
septs. The upper stage of the tower was altered, and on it was placed 
the present spire. Whether or not any alteration was made in the 
chancel it is impossible to say. In all its main features, therefore, the 
church to-day is the church of six hundred years ago. 

The windows of the church are of great variety and beauty. The 
Lancet style is seen in the lower stage of the tower, where over two 
separate lights there is a continuous hood-moulding or dripstone. The 
form of tracery known as Late Geometrical was used when the lighting 
of the newly-built nave and enlarged aisles was begun. The west 
wdndow of the north aisle is a fine example of reticulated tracery ; the 
large window over the west door has intersecting tracery, and so also 
have the two windows in the east wall of the south transept, where, 
however, the foliation is different in character. Before the lighting of 
he church had far proceeded, the Late Geometrical style was supplanted 
by the Curvilinear, of which the most noteworthy example is the rose 
window in the east wall of the north transept. The transition of window 
tracery from the Flowing to the Perpendicular is illustrated m two 
windows which are exactly alike — the east window of the chancel and 
the west window of the south aisle. Both windows are excellent examples 
of a style which combines richness of tracery with ample space for that 
display of painted glass which Fergusson regards as the important forma- 
tive principle of Gothic architecture. 

The sacrarium or piscina, of which an illustration is given, is 
Decorated in style as late perhaps as the middle of the fourteenth 

The latest addition to the church during the four great periods of 
ecclesiastical architecture was the north porch, which is in the Perpen- 
dicular style, with lierne vaulting ornamented with the Tudor-flower.

Over the porch is a room which may have been a parvise or room for 
the priest. 

With the dissolution of Cirencester Abbey, the church at Cheltenham 
passed into the possession of the Crown, and with it property recorded 
as worth /go a year, and the value of which may have been much 

In 1598 Queen Elizabeth leased the rectory and church at Cheltenham 
and the chapel at Charlton Kings, with all the property belonging 
thereto, to Francis Bacon, for forty years, on payment of ^75 13s. ^d. 
a year to the Crown, with an obligation to support two priests and two 
deacons to celebrate divine service in the said church and chapel, and 
also "to find bread and wine for the Sacrament and all other necessaries 
for the celebration of divine worship." A sub-lessee was found in a 
Mrs. Badger, who persistently refused to carry out the covenants into 
which Bacon had entered, and the end of a long dispute was an arbi- 
trator's order that /40 a year should be paid to the minister at Cheltenham 
and a like sum to the minister at Charlton Kings. It was stated in the 
course of the proceedings that the rectory was worth ;^6oo a year ; and 
from the description of the property as set out in the lease to Bacon it is 
certain that had the property remained in the hands of the church the 
endowments of the livings in Cheltenham and Charlton Kings would 
to-day amount to several thousand pounds a year. 

An able paper by the late J. H. Middleton, F.S.A., on the Manor and 
Parish Church at Cheltenham will be found in the Transactions, vol. iv., 
pp. 53-72, with a ground plan opposite page 57. 

As the party passed round the interior Mr, Sawyer pointed out different 
features, one of which was the long-winded appreciation of Captain 
Skillicorne upon a mural tablet, certainly the most lengthy eulogium of 
the kind to be found in any church. In the course of the praise lavished 
upon the deceased it was stated : "He could do business in seven tongues; 
he was of great regularity and probity, and so temperate as never to have 
been once intoxicated." When the party were outside the church, Mr. 
Sawyer directed attention to some old epitaphs in the churchyard, one to 
John Higgs, famed for killing pigs, and another to John Payne, blacksmith. 
He said the oft-quoted lines — 

" Here I lies with my two daughters. 
All through drinkine: the Cheltenham waters: 
If we had stuck to Epsom salts 
We shouldn't be lying in these here vaults" 

did not appear upon any tombstone, but were simply a wicked reflection 

upon the merits of the local waters, and their alleged curative properties. 

The vehicles were drawn up near St. George's Hall, High Street, 

and having entered them, the company enjoyed a ride by way of the 



Tewkesbury Road to Tredington, where the church of St. John the Baptist 
was inspected. 

A description of this church, by the Rev. J. Green, appears in the 
Transactions, vol. xiv., p. 203. Consisting of a^imple nave and chancel, it 
preserves its original twelfth-century plan unaltered, masonry of that period 
appearing both at the east and west ends, and the only addition being the 
south porch. It has, however, this peculiarity, that while the nave inside 
is some three feet wider than the chancel, outside there is, on the south 
side, no break. The walling of the nave is superior to that of the chancel, 
and this alone has a plinth. The east end has a gable, of finer masonry 
than the wall below, set back. 

With the exception of one in the south wall of the chancel, all the 
original windows have been altered in the fourteenth, fifteenth, and 
sixteenth centuries, but the two doorways remain, that on the south side 
having two orders with chevron ornament, and a label mould ending in 
dragons' heads. The tympanum of the north door is a very fine example 
of the date, having three strongly-carved figures, the centre one seated 
and holding a pastoral crook, the other two kneeling and holding books ; 
this represents, no doubt, the Saviour throned in majesty, and angels in 
adoration. The rood-beam remains over the chancel arch, with the cavity 
in the centre for the insertion of the crucifix. 

The interior of the church has many interesting features. The belfry 
is supported on timber framing standing on supports within the church. 
The woodwork of the seats retains the solid bench-ends of the fifteenth) 
century, with panels of the seventeenth, on which appear initials but 
no date. To the same period belong the altar and the pulpit panels, and 
perhaps the rails ; also probably the curious plaster ceiling adorned with 
heads, roses, oak leaves, lilies, etc. 

The walls having been entirely stripped retain no trace of decoration. 
The low chancel arch of the twelfth century remains, and above it, at the 
Tevel of the wall plate, a beam which seems to have supported the rood. 
A vertical groove in the wall may be connected with this. 

Of the more ancient fittings nothing remains except a chest and two 
fragments of glass, one on the north side of the chancel, in good order, 
with a conventional king's head of the fourteenth century. There is an 
aumbry in the east wall — a not uncommon feature in this neighbourhood. 

The churchyard cross, with its very tall and slender stem, also follows 
a local type. (Cf. Ripple.) 

Considerable time was spent in examining the interesting church. Nor 
were the secular associations of the neighbourhood forgotten, on the opposite 
side of the road being a substantial building in which Edward IV. lodged 
the night before the eventful Battle of Tewkesbury. 

A short drive brought the archaeologists to the primitive-looking church 


Transactions for the Year 1905. 

at Stoke Archer, not the least agreeable feature in the ride being the 
essentially rural aspect of the district, and it would have been no difficult 
effort to carry the mind back and imagine that the country presented much 
same aspect many centuries ago. 

The church was carefully described and illustrated by the late Rev. 
J. L. Petit, whose notes and drawings appear in the Transactions, 
vol. xiv., p. 20. It is only necessary now to call attention to one or 
two points. 

1. In plan and architectural features the church is one of the least 
changed in the county, being very nearly as its original builders left it. 
It retains four of its narrow round-headed windows, much of its Norman 
chancel arch, a very early piscina, and a fine carved font. 

A few of the windows were altered in the fourteenth and fifteenth 
centuries, and the east wall has been rebuilt, otherwise it is qualis ah initio. 

2. The church has been much plastered within and without. Inside 
there are, as usual, many successive coats, concealing, and in some cases 
preserving, a most interesting series of wall paintings of various dates. 
Of these, in the present condition of the church, it is impossible to ,say 
much at present, but the design on the west wall is a remarkably fine one ; 
the dignified figure of our Lord seated sideways, with one hand raised in 
benediction, suggests the coronation of the Blessed Virgin Mary ; if so, 
the rest of the subject is on the other side of the window. Another 
figure is partly uncovered, and the background is powdered with stars. 
In other places various rich patterns appear, and it is plain that here, as 
elsewhere, the church has gone through successive periods of decoration 
and destruction, the latest attempt to adorn it being by texts (Command- 
ments), with an ornamental frame in w-hat was evidently the usual and 
common-sense place, i.e. on one of the walls of the nave. Here also the 
rood-beam remains, and there are some good old oak benches. 

The next stopping-place was Bishop's Cleeve, and here luncheon was 
served in the tithe barn by permission of the rector (the Rev. T. Jesson). 
Mr. F. F. Fox presided, and after luncheon he said it had been proposed 
to have the next summer meeting of the Society at Bristol. That was not 
finally settled, and he asked that they should leave it to the Council to 
make the arrangements for the meeting. This proposition was agreed to. 

Canon Bazeley proposed the customary votes of thanks. He first 
mentioned Colonel Noel and IMiss Noel at the Great House, North Nibley, 
who welcomed them at the spring meeting. He remarked when they were 
received as on that occasion, when they had very muddy shoes, and 
were made welcome and were pressed to stay till their brakes were ready 
to start, they must all feel grateful for such hospitality. They had now 
to thank the Mayor and Corporation -of Cheltenham for affording them 
the use of the new Town Hall, and he congratulated the town upon the 





Mary's, Cheltenham. 



possession of so fine a building. They thanked Mrs. Hicks-Beach and 
Mrs. Ratcliff for the afternoon tea they provided. They must not forget 
those who made the arrangements for the meeting, and they desired to 
recognise the efforts of Mr. Prothero and Mr.'Currie, and especially the 
latter, who had done much of the work pertaining to a local secretary 
for the Society. 

The resolution was carried, and Mr. Currie briefly responded. 

A move was then made in the direction of the Church of St. Michael 
and All Angels, of which the main architectural features were described 
by Mr. Prothero, who also most kindly provided the following description 
of the growth and present condition of this noble church. 

Church of St. Michael and All Angels, Bishop's Cleeve. 
This large and stately church, one of the most interesting in the county, 
was described in the Transactions, vol. iv., pp. 248-269, by the late J. Henry 
Middleton, in a paper which was (like everything else he wrote) accurate 
and exhaustive. A plan was given, which is here reproduced, and it is 
the purpose of these notes — 

(a) Merely to recapitulate the dates, etc., of the plan. 

(b) To point out some features which in the condition of the church 

in 1879 Dr. Middleton had no means of discovering, or could 
only guess at. 

(a) As the plan shows, the dates of the existing church are as follows : — 
Twelfth century. The west end with its turrets, part of the nave 
arcade, the south porch, the north transept, part of the base of the tower 
with the arches on either side of it, and the west wall of the south 

Fourteenth century. The north aisle, the west buttress, the south 
•chapel, most of the south transept, and the whole of the chancel. 

Fifteenth century. Fan vaulting and window in south aisle. 

Seventeenth century. The very beautiful, and now perhaps unique, 
west gallery. 

1700 A.D. The tower, which replaces one which fell in 1696, and was 
surmounted (according to Rudder) by a spire. Also probably the some- 
what ungainly arches of the nave arcade, and part of the walling over 

The twelfth-century church consisted of the nave, tv/o narrow aisles, 
a central tower, probably lower than the present one, and surmounted by 
a spire, two transepts, and a chancel of unknown length, but shorter no 
doubt than the present one. 

The nave remains, but altered, as will be explained later. The mag- 
nificent porch, with its parvise over, is intact ; and the west end of the 
south aisle with its original window is unaltered. The north transept and

part of the south transept are of the same period, and retain the Norman 
arches leading into the aisles. Over these arches the weathering of the 
old aisle roofs is visible, marking the original width on either side. The 
fine west front, with its two lofty pinnacles surmounting staircases, is 
intact, except that the window is a fourteenth-century insertion. Of the 
fittings of that period there survives a piscma on a little column in the 
south transept. 

In the fourteenth cen'ury very important alterations were made. The 
aisles were pulled down, the north aisle made very wide, and the south 
aisle rearranged and added to, its original outer wall being marked by a 
very graceful arcade with slender shafts and ball-flower ornament on the 
capitals, and beyond that a south chapel or outer aisle. Part of the 
south transept was rebuilt, and the whole of the chancel, a long aisleless 
conventual choir, which remains practically unaltered. 

In the fifteenth century not very much was done. The windows in the 
south chapel are of that date, also the beautiful but insecure piece of 
fan vaulting put up to serve as a floor to the enlarged parvise. This 
is a bold and rather reckless bit of construction ; until lately it was 
supported on a wooden pole resting on the gallery, which it split from top 
to bottom, and it is now stirruped up in a very modern way with iron 
from the back. 

The sixteenth century one may pass over in silence. Nothing was put 
in, but much was taken out. Altar, screens, rood, figures, glass, paintings, 
everything that could be broken or sold disappeared, and this church has 
no trace (or only one dubious one) of the partial revival of care and 
decency in the later years of Elizabeth. 

To the seventeenth century (probably Charles I.'s time) belongs the 
magnificent gallery — one of the most beautiful examples of Jacobean work 
in the country. Unhappily in the days of the Gothic revival most of the 
fine work of the Stuart period fell a victim to misplaced zeal and disap- 
peared : one must be the more thankful for what remains. 

In 1696 the tower and spire fell down. Why they fell down in this 
case it is difficult to see. They often did fall down, but that was because 
the fourteenth-century people opened out such big arches into the tran- 
septs that the tower, losing its supports, collapsed. (If the tower of St. 
Mary's, Cheltenham, had come down one would not be surprised ; but 
here there was no such change to account for the fall.) 

The tower was rebuilt in 1700 — lofty and not without dignity, but with 
rough detail. It seems probable, unless there is documentary evidence to 
the contrary, that this was the time when a very unfortunate alteration 
was made in the nave. The alternate pillars were removed, leaving only 
two out of five on each side, and with them the original round arches with 
chevron ornament. Instead were inserted the sprawling and shapeless 

Cheltenham. 1396S89 35 

arches we now see. The springing of the original arches is now visible, 
the plaster being removed, at the east and west ends of the arcade. 

Of the roofs not much need be said. They were much decayed and 
covered with plaster and paper, and the wholer of them let in water freely 
before the church v/as repaired. The north aisle roof was put there in 
Charles II. 's time (1671). 

The roof of the Delabere aisle is a fifteenth-century roof, of very 
good design ; as much of it as did not fall to bits is still there, mended 
and re-leaded. 

That is the story of the actual fabric. Now for a word or two about 
its contents. 

1. First, the altars. Of these there were six. The conventual high 
altar was at the end of the choir under the east window ; it was pulled 
down under Edward VI. or Elizabeth and the present marble slab was 
put up in 1794. 

The parish altar was in front of the rood-loft, twest of the tower, the 
space under the tower and the two transepts serving as a passage from 
the parochial to the conventual church 

Each transept contained one altar under its east wall, and there were 
two more at the east ends of the aisles : of that on the northern side, now 
replaced by a modern one, there remains the ornamental cornice above 
the dossal and the footpace ; the southern is wholly eclipsed by the 
Delabere monument. How many of them there are at the present 
moment in the church one cannot feel sure,^ but probably three, besides 
the two modern ones. 

2. The pews at the bottom of the church are of the fifteenth century, 
and no doubt stood farther eastward. 

3. Very few fragments of painted glass escaped. In the south aisle 
are a few scraps, and there are some more waiting to go back in their old 
places in the north aisle : among these are remains of a figure playing a harp. 

4. There are three important monuments — 

{a) A cross-legged knight in the south transept of the latter part 
of Henry III.'s reign. Mr. Hartshorne points out that 
the whole of the mail has been stamped upon the stone 
surface in gesso, which is an unusual treatment. 

(b) Then inside the rails of the Delabere monument there is a 
recumbent effigy of a lady. It is admirable for its dignity 
and fine draping ; but Mr. Hartshorne, who puts it down, 
to the time of Henry VII., rather quarrels with her clothes, 
and says she wears "a loose and badly-arranged wimple, 
a degenerate descendant of the beautiful folded facecloth 

1 The altar slabs were commonly buried in the pavement face downwards, and thus 
used as tombstones, the inscription being on the back. One of these at Cleeve is face 


Transactions for the Year 1905. 

and kerchief of the fourteenth century." However that 
may be, she is a beautiful little figure. 
(c) Lastly, there is the magnificent Delabere monument, not only 
a fine piece of decoration, such as so often appeared in our 
churches under the Stuarts, but the figures are admirably 
sculptured, the lady's face being especially good. 
Now about the wall-paintings. There is not very much to show, for 
when a church has been allowed to become rotten and ruinous it is luck 
indeed if any of its wall decoration survives. 

The earliest painting here is in the splay of the Norman window, in the 
west wall of the south transept, which can be seen from the vestry. It 
was walled up, and when we took out the filling, two if not three layers 
of painted decoration came to light. The Norman churches, both here 
and in France, were painted over with what one can only call sham 
masonry lineS, with a little pattern in the middle of each stone. This 
window splay was so treated : it was very dull, and people soon wanted 
something better, so over it a fine bold plant is drawn in strong, effective 
black lines. There is also a small crowned head. 

In the north transept we removed the filling-in of what proved to be a 
recessed arch, and at the back, forming the reredos of the altar, we found 
a painting of the crucifixion, with St. Mary and St. John, St. John the 
Baptist, and a king — probably Offa. The drawing is rude, and no scale is 
observed, but the colour is simple and effective. 

The north wall of the aisle was a mass of painting ; but as it was 
unluckily dangerous and had to be partly rebuilt, it was possible only to 
save scraps. There is a curious design with fish or eels ; over it were 
eighteenth-century commandments, of which one wishes some part had 
been preserved ; and there is still a scrap of sixteenth or seventeenth- 
century decorative bordering left in one place. 

Lastly, in the parvise are the curious drawings on the walls, whereby 
the village schoolmaster of one hundred years ago instructed the children 
of the parish. His name was Sperry, and he deserves mention as a 
pioneer of the system of teaching by the eye. 

The arrangements of the north transept are curious : the winding 
staircase in the north-east corner must have led to a gallery passing over 
the altar to the rood-loft ; and opposite is a remarkable staircase leading 
to the belfry, made of solid log steps, with a fine panelled balustrade. 
A very ancient log chest is also in this transept. 

In its long career this noble church has suffered in various ways, not 
only from the havoc done by the spoiler and fanatic, and the utter neglect 
of later ages, but also one must admit from the scamping of the ancient 
builders. To the absence of proper foundations was probably due the 
fall of the tower, and certainly the dangerous inclination of the Svest 



front ; while the decay of the fourteenth-century north wall must be 
ascribed to the heterogeneous stuff (a coffin i7iter alia) of which its core 
was composed. 

It is to be noted that the old marble altar slab is still in use on a new 

The company then made their way to the chapel at Southam Delabere, 
which is a small building, so that when the party had taken their seats 
they proved a crowded congregation. 

The chapel and Pigeon House Farm form a charming group. The 
former, notwithstanding very considerable alterations made by the late 
Lord Ellenborough when it was restored for public worship, retains its 
original form and a great deal of its twelfth-century masonry. 

Of the windows, that in the north wall of the chancel alone remains 
unaltered, with a curious ornament over it. A fine old door survives, and 
the chapel contains four stalls of Renaissance design, and two good 
pictures— one of the Flemish school — both representing the legend of 
St. Veronica. 

The Pigeon House Farm is partly a fourteenth-century building, with 
mullioned windows of that date, partly a later half-timbered house. The 
tithe barn is a fine example of timber construction, with stone ends and 
low walls supporting the framing. The little buildmg to the east of it has 
a small fourteenth-century window, and a curious stone shoot, said to be 
for distribution of corn. 

The manor house has a frontage of very good seventeenth-century 
work (1631), with delicate mouldings to the chimneys. The back is a 
beautiful example of half-timber work, perhaps earlier than the front of the 
house. The old staircase remains, but the panelling has been removed. 

The tithe barn was also inspected, after which the party were enter- 
tained to tea by Mrs. Ratcliff at the manor house. In the grounds the 
Rev. E. R. Dowdeswell read an account of the Huddleston family, of 
Millom, Cumberland, who built Southam House, which is one of the 
oldest mansions in Gloucestershire. A ramble through the grounds and 
an inspection of some of the apartments of the charming residence com- 
pleted the visit, and in the evening the party retui^ned to Cheltenham, 

Thus ended one of the most enjoyable summer meetings in the annals 
of the Society, for everything was well arranged, and ample time was 
allowed for seeing thoroughly everything which appeared in the pro- 
gramme ; and though Worcester Cathedral was the only notable building 
visited, the little country churches provided abundance of points of 
interest, of which some at any rate were unexpected ; for instance, it 
would probably be difficult to find elsewhere three ancient rood-beams 
remaining in so small a space as those at Witcombe, Tredington, and 
Stoke Archer. Little buildings are often quite as full of instruction 
and interest as big ones are. '

Gloucester, and Master of Pembroke College, Oxford, 

President of the Society. 

I HAD better begin with Amos' disclaimer, "I am no prophet, 
neither am I a prophet's son, but I am an herdman and a 
gatherer of wild hgs." I have no business in this chair. 
I am in no sense an antiquar}^, and my knowledge of the 
small plot of archaeology that I affect to work is of the 
shallowest. I have neither the leisure nor the habit of mind 
necessary for the historical investigation of the subject. jNIy 
knowledge (such as it is) is all at second-hand, and architec-. 
tural more than antiquarian. 

After this much-needed apology, I announce my subject : 
^'The monastic and kindred institutions that still exist 
above ground in Bristol and Gloucestershire." B3/ kindred 
institutions I mean friaries and colleges : not hospitals, 
much less chantries. Even with this limitation, tlie subject 
is wider than I like to face. 

I had at first thought of tracing Gloucestershire monasti- 
cism from its ovigines ; but I soon found that I was wholly 
unequal to its adequate treatment, being away from books 
and unused to original historical research: and also that it 
has already been fully treated in your Transactions by a 
master's hand. So I take what interests me, and must try 
to interest you in it. 

In order to take a conspectus of monastic Bristol and 
Gloucestershire, we nuist pass before us in brief review the 
different monastic orders. Two great Orders or " Ru^es "

dominate English monasticism, the rule of St. Benedict and 
that of St. Austin. 

Both were simple, and though sufficiently strict to provide 
a real discipline of community life/' were both "sweetly 
reasonable." And both had enough of elasticity to render 
them permanent amid the shifting conditions of national life, 
recuperative and reproductive. For out of these two were 
evolved other systems, which flourished with more or less of 
vitality side by side with the parent orders. 

In the case of the Benedictines, the reason for secession 
first of Cluniacs then of Cistercians was dissatisfaction with 
a rale which to more ardent Pietists seemed not sufficiently 
strict. It was the same cult of perfection through asceticism 
which evolved the Montanists and Novatians in the second 
and third centuries, and long afterwards gave birth to 
Puritanism and its brood of Separatists. 

But while Cluniacs and Cistercians had their own separate 
organisation, they remained in close relation and full amity 
with the mother stock. Indeed, so close was the link 
between Cluniacs and Benedictines, that the Priors of 
Daventry and Monk Bretton sat in the English General 
Benedictine Chapter. Lewes was their mother house in 
England, but there were not many houses of the Order; nor 
IS it easy accurately to define their relation with the parent 
house at Clugny. 

The Cistercians also went off in quest of a stricter rule : 
from them sprang the Trappists of modern times. This 
yearning for austerity impressed itself on their monasteries. 
The church was plain and barn-like ; no triforium ; no 
tower : Pontigny is a good example of this severity, as also 
is Abbey Dore in England. Another peculiarity in their 
buildings was that whereas the Benedictine refectory lay 
parallel to the nave of the church across the cloister court, 
the Cistercian refectory ran out at right angles to the alley of 
the cloister opposite the nave. 

They differed from the Benedictines in being essentially 
agricultural, farming their own lands. With them, con-

sequently, the Conversi, or lay brethren, formed a distinct 
element, and the domus convevsonmi a distinct feature in their 
buildings. The Benedictines rented their lands, and had 
paid lay servants. 

Stricter still, and combining the ccenobite and anchoret 
life, was the Carthusian Order, which took its origin in France. 
Its founder was Bruno, a native and canon of Cologne in 
1080. To most of us it is most familiar from the Grande 
Chartreuse in Dauphine, the Certosa at Pavia, and the 
Charterhouse (better known now as school than monastery) 
in London. In this Order the buildings were yet plainer and 
grimmer than the Cistercian. The monks seldom met 
except in choir : each tenanted his separate cell, through an 
aperture in which his daily rations were thrust from the 
cloister. This unique monastic arrangement may be seen in 
the ruins of Mount Grace Priory, near Northallerton in 
Yorkshire. The Order never became popular in England : 
besides the two houses already mentioned there were but 
few; none in Gloucestershire. Our nearest were Witham 
and Hinton Charterhouse, both in Somerset. 

The Augustinians were not monks or nuns, but canons 
or canonesses regular, because, unlike the secular canons of 
the cathedral and collegiate churches, they were bound by a 
definite rule of life. They were, like monks, enclosed, but 
much in the world ; often engaged in parochial ministration. 
They held, in fact, a m.iddle place between monks and 

From them sprang the Premonstratensians, a stricter 
branch, the Canons of the Holy Sepulchre, the Bridgettines 
for professed women, and our own indigenous English Order, 
the Gilbertines, founded 1139 b}^ Gilbert of Semperinghaniy 
in Lincolnshire (this was their mother house), and consisting 
of communities of men living under the rule of St. Austin, 
and women living under the Benedictine rule, living separate 
but in one conventual establishment. This Order was 
largely confined to the eastern side of England : one house^

Monastic Institutions. 

Most of the larger monasteries of all the Orders had 
dependencies, or, as they are commonly called, cells — a 
difBcult term to define. They varied^in size, number and 
importance : e.g., Leominster, a large establishment with a 
stately church, was a cell of Reading ; Caversham, with but 
one resident canon and a tiny village church, was a cell to 
Notle}^ These cells were sometimes elevated into indepen- 
dent houses. Generally speaking, the priorate of a cell was 
dative, not elective ; sometimes both revenue and title were 
given to some senior or emeritus of the parent monastery^ 
who seldom visited the cell he was supposed to govern. 
Often — in the case of Augustinian cells usually — the 
parish church was served from the cell, the manse, like 
the parsonage of to-day, not being always closely contiguous 
to the church. 

Alien Priories were cells to foreign houses, chiefly 
(though by no means exclusively) Norman, and the direct 
outcome of the Conquest. They simply swarmed in the 
counties bordering on the Channel, and were dotted over the 
country generally, as Deerhurst was made a cell of St. Denys 
by the Conqueror. There were from loo to 150 of them, 
chiefly Benedictine but by no means confined to that Order. 
These cells were dependencies or colonies of the great 
French abbeys to which they belonged, manned or at least 
officered by Frenchmen ; but they were virtually nothing but 
foreign agencies to collect and remit rents and profits to the 
mother houses. Large sums were thus annually drained from 
the country. Dom. Gasquet makes the almost incredible 
assertion that in the reign of Edward IIL ;^2,ooo ( = some 
;f6o,ooo) found its way annually to Cluniac houses alone. 
This meant that during the French wars England was largely 
subsidising her enemy, to say nothing of the fact that AHen 
Priories constituted a kind of Intelligence Department to the 
foe. One cannot wonder, therefore, that our kings from time 
to time intercepted and appropriated their revenues. From 
about 1200 to 1400 they led a chequered existence, and 
finally were suppressed in 1414 and their revenues vested in 


Transactions for the Year 1905. 

the Crown. This was the first great act of Disendowment 
in England, and doubtless formed a precedent for the greater 
one which followed in the next century. In this case, how- 
ever, there was no secularisation of church endowment. The 
foreign cells either were made denizen, or their property was 
diverted to the augmentation of English foundations, such as 
the Carthusian house at Shene, or the colleges of Eton, 
King's, Cambridge, and Windsor; or as Deerhurst was 
assigned to Tewkesbury. 

From the Monks we pass to the Friars, a totally different 
organisation ; bound indeed by the three great rules of 
chastity, poverty and obedience, but devoted not to self- 
culture in spiritual matters, but to the salvation of their 
fellow-men. Hence they were not, like monks, enclosed, 
being devoted to spiritual work outside their convent, which 
was more of a shelter than a home. Their houses were 
established almost entirely in towns and generally in their 
slums. They lived among the people, begged their daily 
bread, and in the days of their first zeal were both useful and 
popular. There were about 200 friaries in England appor- 
tioned mainly among four great Orders, Dominicans or Black 
Friars, Franciscans or Grey Friars, Carmelites or White 
Friars, and Augustinians or Eremites. There were a few 
lesser Orders, the most important of which were the 
Trinitarians or Maturines or Red Friars and the Crouched 
or Crossed Friars. Their houses were as a rule small, 
averaging ten inmates : their main business was preaching 
and teaching, and they lived on the alms of the people 
among whom they worked. Beyond their house, its church 
and ornaments they had no endowments. Hence at the 
Dissolution they contributed a beggarly quota to the spoil 
of the royal robber. 

Any sketch, however slight, would be incomplete without 
some reference to the two military monastic Orders, the 
Templars and the Knights of St. John, or Hospitallers, 
familiar to us who still read our Scott from TJie Talisman 
and Ivanlioe. They were a strange hybrid between sddier 

Monastic Institutions. 


and monk, the former being the predominant feature. Into 
the tragic history of the Templars' fall I must not enter. 
Suffice it to say that their Order was sup^pressed in 13 12, and 
the greater part of their possessions and preceptories was 
transferred to the Hospitallers as being a kindred Order with 
like aims, viz. the relief of the poor, the maintaining of 
hospitality, the celebration of divine service, and the defence 
of the Holy Land. 

There is yet another coenobitic institution, distinct from 
the monastery and yet having some affinity with conventual 
life, viz. the College of Secular Priests, similar in constitution 
to the Old Foundation Cathedral Chapters. Some of them 
survived into my recollection — Windsor, Wolverhampton, 
Manchester, Ripon (refounded as a college out of a monastery), 
Southwell, Middleham, Heytesbury, Wimborne, St. Endel- 
lion, with a more or less complete roll of canons or preben- 
daries, with the Portionist churches of Tiverton, Burford, 
Pontesbury. But the Act of 1840, through sheer wantonness 
of destruction^ not only assigned the revenues of most of 
them to the Ecclesiastical Commission, but actually dissolved 
the corporations. Westminster (refounded as a college after 
the dissolution of St. Peter's Abbey), Windsor, and St. 
Endellion (saved probably by its obscurity and impecuniosity) 
are all that now survive. Eton and Winchester have been 
secularised and disendowed, and turned into governing 

. These colleges were numerous down to the reign of 
Edward VI., and were a most useful and beneficent institu- 
tion ; but with the hospitals, equally useful and beneficent, 
they were swept away to satisfy the unholy greed of the boy 
king's uncles and courtiers. In Durham Bishopric " (not 
diocese) there were five — Darlington, Chester-le-Street, 
Staindrop, Auckland, Norton ; and from these centres the 
prebendaries served the neighbouring village churches, living 
as seculars but under statutable discipline, very much like 
the modern clergy house. 

It is not easy to draw the line of demarcation between 


Transactions for the Year 1905. 

colleges and the larger chantries. These are not infrequently 
loosely styled colleges. 

This completes our survey, and it now only remains 
briefly to state what samples we have of all of these in 

Of Benedictine abbeys we have our great Abbey of 
St. Peter in Gloucester, refounded at the Dissolution as the 
Cathedral Church of the Holy and Undivided Trinity at the 
creation of the diocese out of Worcester, and the Abbeys of 
Tewkesbury and Winchcombe. All these were mitred at the 
time of the Dissolution, i.e. the abbot wore the insignia of 
episcopacy and sat as a Lord of Parliament with the Peers» 
Winchcombe is entirely gone, with the exception of some 
carefully-preserved fragments and a small oaken door. 

St. Peter's, Gloucester, had several cells or dependencies, 
(i) St. Guthlac's, at Hereford : possibly St. Peter's Church 
in that city may have served as the chapel of the cell, but 
its site is more probably where the gaol stands. (2) Brom- 
field, in Salop : the church survives, and the ruins of a 
mansion on its south side, probably built on the site and out 
of the materials of the Priory. (3) Ewenny, in Glamorgan, 
has its stately Norman church almost intact, and its gatehouse 
and precinct wall (in part). (4) Stanley Sl^. Leonard, in Glou- 
cestershire, also has its interesting church complete, and 
another small Decorated building of uncertain identification. 

To these we must add Kilpeck, in Herefordshire, with its 
beautiful little Norman parish church, which probably also 
served for the offices of the Religious ; and Ewyas Harold, 
largely reconstructed, but possessing a massive and dignified 
west tower — if indeed these were cells in the proper sense 
of the word. Llantwit Major, too, in Glamorgan, alsO' 
belonged to Gloucester, with a church of exceptional interest,, 
gatehouse, dovecot and barn, all pointing to a monastic 
settlement. The advowson was in the patronage of the 
Dean and Chapter of Gloucester till quite recently, when 
they exchanged it with the Bishop of Llandaff for a non- 
bilingual benefice elsewhere. * 

Monastic Institutions. 


Besides these, the great abbey had a dependency at 
Oxford for purely academic purposes, Gloucester Hall, and a 
cell, St. Peter's, at Norwich ; and, as though all this was 
not enough, it unsuccessfully contested with Chertsey the 
claim to mother the Benedictine priory at Cardigan. 

Tewkesbury had as its cells St. James at Bristol, 
Cranborne in Dorset, and Deerhurst. The nave of the great 
Church of St. James much mutilated is used as the church 
of the parish. Deerhurst was an old Saxon monastery. It 
seems certain that St. Elphege was an inmate, and also 
abbot. It passed in the fifteenth century under the rule 
of Tewkesbury. Its most interesting church with th'j 
adjoining manse, considerably altered, still exist. 

Our Cistercian houses are Hayles, Fiaxley and Kings- 
wood. Of Hayles I need not speak. Till lately a considerable 
portion of the cloister was all that was known to exist. 
Thanks to the skilful operations of Canon Bazeley and Mr. 
Baddeley, we now know all about the great church and the 
chapter house ; and we eagerly await more light as further 
excavations are undertaken. 

Of Fiaxley very little is left ; what there is — a groined 
basement, now used as kitchen, and a good pointed door — 
are encased in a dwelling house, some of the roofs of which 
are possibly original. 

Of Kingswood nothing is left but the beautiful abbey 
gatehouse. Kingswood had a cell at Tetbury : a small 
fragment of wall with two or three trefoiled lancet windows 
(blocked) and a pointed door is all that remains of it. 

There were in Gloucestershire three Austin Canons' 
houses. Bristol, St. Augustine's Abbey, refounded as a 
Cathedral Chapter in 1542, and now restored to more than 
its original dimensions ; part of its Perpendicular cloister 
its fine Norman chapter house, with vestibule, a Decorated 
refectory door, and two Norman gatehouses are in existence. 

Of the great Abbey of Cirencester not a trace survives 
above ground but a gatehouse — not the principal one. 

Lanthony, properly Lantonia Secunda, just outside 


Transactions for the Year .1905. 

Gloucester, almost obliterated by rail and canal, still 
possesses a splendid fragment of a barn, big enough and 
solidly enough built for a church, a timbered hospitium (?), 
and a fragment of what must have been a noble gatehouse, 
was formerly a cell to the Lanthony Abbey hid away among 
the bleak hills of Monmouthshire near the Vale of Ewias. In the 
time of Edward IV, their relative positions became reversed : 
Lantonia Secunda became the mother house, and the abbey 
on the Honddu the cell. Lanthony had a small dependency 
at Brockworth, where there is an almost exact reproduction 
of the Gloucester hospitium (?), with interesting wall paint- 
ing in an upper room. 

Gloucestershire had its share of alien cells. 

Beckford, cell to St. Barbe en Ange in Normandy, or 
according to some authorities to Cormeille ; granted by 
Henry VI. to Eton College. 

Brimpsfield, cell to Fontenay, then assigned to Eton 
College, and subsequentl}^ to Fotheringay College. 

Deerhurst, cell to St. Denys, assigned finally to 

Minchinhampton and Avening, dependencies of the 
Abbaye aux Dames (Ste Trinite) at Caen, both assigned 
to Syon (Bridgettine). 

Hasildon, a small monastery where the Cistercian monks 
of Kingswood sojourned in the time of King Stephen. 

Horsley, a cell of St. Martin of Troarn, which passed by 
exchange to the Priory of Bruton. 

Of these little or nothmg in the shape of conventual 
buildings survives. The parish church in whole or in part 
probably served for their divine offices. 

And, lastly, for the colleges. There were but few. By 
far the most important was Westbury-on-Trym : a fine 
church and a gatehouse tower still attest its importance. 

Cirencester, before it was made regular by Henry I., 
was a college of secular priests. 

Frocester was a college which became merged in St» 
Peter's, Gloucester. And there is said to have been a cpllege

at Kinline or Kinley, in the parish of Nimpsfield, of which 
I can find nothing. 

The following Friars' houses existed. At Gloucester 
houses of Dominicans, Franciscans' and Carmelites ; 
considerable portions of the two former houses still remain. 
At Wootton-under-Edge a small establishment of Crutched 
Friars. At Bristol the Dominicans had a house in Merchant 
Street, the Franciscans in Lewin's Mead, the Carmelites on 
the site of Colston Hall, and the Augustinians in the Goods 
Yard of Temple Meads Station. The refectory and infirmary 
of the first-named house still exist, and traces of the 
Carmelites' house were recently found in digging foundations 
to the west of Colston Hall. It is evident from an entry in 
the Pleas of the Crown for 1287 {Transactions, xxii. 168-9) 
that the Brethren of the Sac, or as they were rightly called 
Brethren of the Penance of Jesus Christ, had a house in 
Bristol about that time; but nothing is known concerning it, 
and the Order was suppressed by the Council of Lyons 
in 1307. 


By the Rev. E. R. DOWDESWELL, M.A. 

Having come into possession of a number of deeds relating 
to Soutiiam, I propose to give a catalogue raisonne of 

Before doing so it may be desirable to give a short 
account of the early devolution of the manor and estates 

The manor and a large estate in Southam was held of 
the Bishop of Worcester in the twelfth century by Milo, 
Earl of Hereford, who died in 1146. His sons all died s.p., 
and his estates were divided between his two daughters, 
Lucy, who married Herbert Fitzherbert, and Bertha, who 
married William de Brewes, whose share in the next 
generation passed by marriage to the De Bohuns. 

Of the two estates in Southam, that of the De Bohuns 
was the more important, being two-thirds of the wliole in 
extent, and including the manorial rights. 

We have first to deal with the Fitzherbert estate. 

Milo, Earl of Hereford, founded the Priory of Llantony 
juxta Gloucester, and part of the endowment consisted of 
the tithes of Southam.^ The convent owned an estate at 
Prestbury, but no land in Southam. 

1. My first deed is not directly connected with Southam. 
It is a grant by the Prior of Llanthony, and Milo de vStowell 
(near North Leach), cleric, to William de Agmundesham, 
cleric, of all lands which he held of the said Religious in 
1 Dugdale, Mon., vi. 136. < 

Some Ancient Deeds. 


the parish of Cleeve, rendering los. per annum at the 
Prior's Court at Prestbury. It is dated 20 Edward I., 1291. 

This deed is in beautiful condition. See below. It is 
not, wholly irrelevant to our subject, as the two following 
deeds have to do with the estate of the family of 
Agmundesham, in Southam, and the last one connects 
them with the Fitzherberts. 

II. My second deed is dated 13 Edward 11. (1320). By 
it John, son of William de Agmundesham, grants to his 
brother Thomas all his rights in all the lands, &c., in 
Southam and Cleeve that belonged to his father, William 
de Agmundesham, the cleric. The only seal attached to it 
bears the device of two crossed hands. 

III. In the third deed Matthew Fitzherbert grants to 
Thomas de Agmundesham all his right in a half virgate of 

and in Southam which the said Thomas had by the gift of 
Herbert, the son of John, the father of the said Matthew. 
This deed is dated 14 Edward III., and is in excellent 
condition, with the seal of Mathew Fitzherbert almost intact, 
bearing a shield with three lions rampant, and surrounded 
by a legend,^ " TH.EI, FILII HERBERTI." 

Before leaving these deeds of the Agmundeshams I may 
say that there is no place of that name in Gloucestershire or 
the neighbourhood. But the town of Amersham, in Bucks, 
was anciently spelled Agumdesham. Lysons (in his Mag. 
Britt.) says, " Agmundesham or Amersham, called in Domes- 
day Elmondesham, was given by William the Conqueror to 
Geoffrey de Mandeville, and descended from him to the noble 
families of Fitzpiers and de Bohuns." 

From this mention of the family of De Bohun I conjecture 
that possibly the William de Agmundesham who bought 
land in Southam from Mathew Fitzherbert may have come 
there with the De Bohun who married the heiress of 

It is worth noting that Fosbroke says that one William 
Emmundesham was seized of the Fitzherbert estate temp.

Henry VIII. It seems probable that he was a representative 
of the fourteenth century Agmundeshams aforesaid. 

It would be difficult, and for my purpose unnecessary, to 
trace in detail the ownership of the Fitzherbert estate for 
the next 200 years, because I have no deeds to illustrate it. 

The Mathew Fitzherbert of my last deed seems to have 
given up all his rights in the lands to his brother Reginald 
in the fifth year of Edward III.,^ and after that the name of 
Fitzherbert does not again occur as owning land in Southam. 

Fosbroke does not know how William Stokes and his 
son became possessed of the manor temp. Henry VL 

The local historians trace the frequent changes down to 
modern times. But the name of Goodman does not appear 
as landowner here until Bigland quotes Leland to the effect 
that Sir John Huddlestone, of Millom, "who had a pretty 
manor place at Southam," had " bought the land from one 
Goodman," which must have been temp. Henry VII. Bigland 
adds "that the very ancient mansion at Southam was 
originally detached from the manor." This, I think, is 
proved by one of the following documents, which shows that 
neither Sir John Huddlestone, who built Southam House, 
nor Kenard Delabere, who inherited it, were " lord of the 
manor" at any time. 

We must therefore bear in mind that the two estates in 
Southam were quite distinct, and that the manorial rights 
were attached, not to this estate, but to the other. 

IV. My next deed is the will of Sir John Huddlestone, Kt., 
which is dated 1545 ; he died in 1547. 

This Sir John Huddlestone, Kt., of Millom Castle, in 
Cumberland, came of a very ancient and important family. 
They were lords of Millom in that county from at least the 
twentieth year of Edward I. The lordship of Millom was 
an immense tract of country ten miles in length and six miles 
in breadth, containing in itself divers manors which are held 
immediately of Millom. Millom Castle is placed at the foot 
of the River Duddan, and the lordship comprehends the 
1 Fosbroke, ii. 356. * 

Some Ancient Deeds. 


whole of the peninsula formed by the channel of the River 
D?iddan on the east and the ocean on the west. 

This great manor was given in the time of Henry I. to 
the De Boyvills, and was brought to the Huddlestones by the 
marriage of Joan de Boyvill to John Huddlestone in the time 
of Henry HI. 

The Huddlestones themselves traced their descent from 
Gamel de Pennington, who is said to have been seated at 
Pennington at the time of the Conquest. 

From Sir John Huddlestone, first lord of Millom, who 
married Joan de Boyvill, descended a long line from father 
to son till we come to Sir John Huddlestone, Kt., who 
married Joan, daughter of Sir Miles Stapleton, temp. 
Henry VH., and was succeeded by his eldest son, Sir 
Richard. His second son. Sir John, married a daughter of 
Lord Fitzhugh. This Sir John was appointed steward of 
Sudeley Castle when on the attainder of Ralph de Boteler 
after the Battle of Bosworth Field (1485) that estate came 
to the Crown. ^ 

It was probably at this time that he bought the estates in 
Gloucestershire that were inherited by his son — our Sir John 
— later on. He or his father also took part in beautifying 
the Abbey of Hayles. Three of the great bosses from the 
roof of the. cloisters which were discovered by our secretary 
bear his arms. The first the Huddlestone coat alone — 
fretty. The second and third bear his arms impaling 
Stapleton; for he had married Jane, one of the daughters 
and coheirs of Sir Miles Stapleton. He died in 15 13, and 
was succeeded at Millom by his eldest son. Sir Richard, 
who married Margaret, daughter of Richard Neville, Earl 
of Warwick ; and our Sir John, as a 3'ounger son, did not 
succeed to Millom till after the death of his nephew 
Richard, who died s.p. But he probably inherited the 
Gloucestershire estates in 15 13, and added thereto, as he 
tells us in his will, by purchase, and built for himself 

^ See Patent Roll, i Richard III., part v., No. 148, where he is called 
" John Hudilston Esquire of the royal body." 


Transactions for the Year 1905. 

that beautiful specimen of Tudor domestic architecture 
which we know as Southam House. 

His will, which is dated 1545, deals only with his 
Gloucestershire estates, which he divided among his 
younger children. His eldest son, Anthony, who succeeded 
him at Millom in 1547, is not mentioned in it. Sir John 
was born in 1489. 

He had married first Jane Clifford, who died childless ; 
secondly the Lady Joan Seymour, aunt of the Lady Jane, 
the second wife of Henry VIH., who was the mother of 
al] his children ; and thirdly Joice Richley, who died 
without issue. 

By this will (deed No. IV.) he left the house and land 
in Cockbury (a farm near Southam) to his son Henry, which 
he tells us he had lately bought of Sir William Kingston. 

He left to Richard his lands in Oxenton, Pamington, 
Cockbury, and Eckington. 

To Andrew a house and land in Guyting. 

To Elynor Huddlestone, my daughter (N.B. — Not married 
in 1545), my messuage and lands in Southam, Prestbury, 
Brockington and Woodmancote. 

To Bridgett, Whitbecke and Millom, in Cumberland, 
and to Anne, his house and lands in Sudeley and 

Bridgett married (i) Sir Hugh Askough of Seyton, 
Cumberland, (2) William Pennington of Muncaster. 

Anne married Ralph Latus, of Kirkby Trelith, whose 
line ended in a daughter, married to William Blencowe, Esq., 
in 1769; while Elynor married Kenard Delabere some time 
between 1545 and 1554, and brought him Southam House 
and* the lands in Southam, Prestbury, Brockhampton, 
and Woodmancote, which we know were left her in her 
father's will. 

Having thus shown how large an estate in this neigh- 
bourhood Sir John divided between his younger children, 
we may now confine our attention to Elynor, the heiress 
of vSoutham.

She married, as we have seen, Kenard Delabere some 
time between 1545, the date of her father's will, and 1554. 

V. For in my next deed (dated 1554) Francis Evans 
grants certain lands in Southam to Kenard Delabere and 
Eleanor his wife. 

VI. In 1581 (the date of my next deed) Anthony 
Huddlestone, who describes himself as son of Sir John 
Huddlestone, Kt., of Millom, and through whom the line of 
Huddlestone, of Millom, was continued till 1774,^ grants and 
confirms to his sister Elynor, now wife of Kenard Delabere, 
Esq., all the messuages, lands, and tenements that had been 
devised to her in their father's last will, "whereof they are 
now and have been for divers years in quiet and peaceable 
possession," but " since divers of the ancient deeds and 
writings and evidences concerning the same messuages, 
lands, &c., have been conveyed away . from me, which may 
hereafter happen to breed some trouble to the occupiers of 
the said lands, &c.," therefore "for the avoiding of such 
trouble, &c., he doth grant and confirm to his sister Elynor, 
&c." In witness whereof he wrote "A. H." and affixed his 
seal bearing the arms of Huddlestone. ^ 

VII. In like manner we have a deed dated 1614 
(No. VII.), by. which William Huddlestone, of Millom, son 
of Anthony, and Joseph Huddlestone, of Farrington, in the 
Bishoprick of Durham, renounce all their right and title in 
the lands in Southam now in possession of Richard Delabere, 
grandson of Sir John Huddlestone.^ 

VIII. Deed No. VIII. is dated 1588, by which John 
Wolley, of Cheltenham, confers on John Delabere the office 
of Seneschal of Cheltenham. 

We may take it, I think, for granted that by this 
time the whole of that one-third of Southam which we 
called the Fitzherbert estate had been acquired by Sir John 

1 Hutchinson's Cumberland, vol. i., pp. 527-8.

her heirs male, and in default to his other children in succession, which 
perhaps made these Deeds of Confirmation desirable.

Huddlestone, and left by his will to his daughter Elynor, 
who married Kenard Delabere, and to their heirs. 

It remains to consider what ha'd become of the other 
two-thirds of the estate, including the manorial rights, which 
had come to the family of De Bohun. 

This estate descended from father to son for many 
generations till it came to King Henry V. as heir to his 
grandfather Humphrey de Bohun. 

This king gave it in dower to his queen with the other 
De Bohun estates, and so it was attached to the Duchy of 

Richard HI. granted it to the Duke of Buckingham, 
whose attainder brought it again to the Crown, and it 
remained in the Crown till the fourth year of James I., 

IX. to XIII. These documents are extracts from the 
Court Roll of the Manor of Southam from 1574 to 1824. 
From them we learn that Queen Elizabeth was lady of the 
manor in 1574, while Mr. Richard Delabere (of whom anon) 
and Margaret his wife held their first court as lord and 
lady of the manor in 1607. 

XIV. Moreover, No. XIV. is an abstract of title of the 
manor, from which we learn that Queen Elizabeth leased the 
manor in 1577 to Thomas Duke for thirty-one years at a rent 
of £\i 2s. per annum. 

But James I. leased the manor in 1604 to Peter Vanlore 
and William Blake. 

The next year they assigned the lease to Lord Cranborne 
(afterwards Earl of Salisbury) for ;^i300, the rent to the 
Crown being £"30 12s. 6d. 

At the same time Lord Cranborne had to buy the 
remainder of the terms of Thomas Duke's lease, which had 
been acquired by William Jenison.

term to Lord Cranborne in 1605 for ;^8oo.

minister free of all rents and dues, and in the next year 
Lord Salisbury sold the manor to Mr. Richard Delabere 
for ;^3,20o. 

XVI. In document XVI. we have the royal licence to 
alienate the manor in 1609. 

XVII. And in No. XVII. a recovery and fine of the 
manor in favour of Richard Delabere in 1608. 

XVIII. and XIX. Nos. XVIII. and XIX. are the deeds 
by which Lord Salisbury gave a final confirmation of his 
sale of the manor, and so completed the transaction in 161 1. 

It may be as well now to make it clear who this Richard 
Delabere was. 

This is made out for us quite clearly in the abstract of 
title before mentioned, No. XIV. 

The Kenard Delabere who married Elynor Huddlestone 
was the son of Sir John Delabere, of Kynersley, in Hereford- 
shire, which Sir John had a younger brother named Kenard. 
It was this Kenard's son Richard (a barrister-at-law), who 
bought the De Bohun estate from Lord Salisbury. He was 
thus first cousin to the Kenard Delabere who married 
Elynor Huddlestone, and had so acquired the other part 
of the Southam estates. 

Thus we have the two cousins Kenard and Richard 
Delabere in possession of these two estates, which lay side by 
side, but still quite separate until when Richard died s.p.^ 
his estate came to his next heir male, his cousin's son, 
Kenard Delabere. 

Thus at last the two portions of the Southam estace 
which had been divided between the two daughters of Milo, 
Earl of Hereford, in the twelfth century, were re-united once 
more in the seventeenth century in the person of Kenard 
Delabere the younger.

William Baghot Delabere in 1741 cut off the entail. My 
copy of the abstract of title is here deficient, but I may add 
from other sources that he was succeeded by his eldest son, 
Thomas Baghot Delabere, in 1764, who died unmarried in 
1820, at the age of go, and left his estates to his sisters, 
Grace Webb and Sarah Delabere. 

XXXII. Thomas had, however, mortgaged his estates 
for ^7,500 to Giles Nash in 1764, on his succession, 
one of our documents — No. XXXII. — being a schedule 
of the deeds and writings deposited as security for that 
sum. <

This was in the year before the death of the last squire

As we have seen already, this Thomas Baghot Delabere, 
who died in 1821, set. 90, left his estates to his only surviving 
sisters — Grace, who married Richard Webb, of Bishops 
Cleeve, and died s.p. in 1829, and Sarah, a spinster, who 
died in July of the same year. 

I have no more deeds to illustrate the further history of 
the manor and estate ; but it will be a fitting conclusion 
to this paper if I add a few notes concerning the present 
representative of the ancient families of Delabere and Baghot. 

6o Transactions for the Year 1905. 

It will be remembered that Kenard Delabere, the last of 
the heirs male of that line, left Southam to William Baghot, 
the eldest son of his sister Anne, who then took the name 
of Delabere in addition to that of Baghot. 

This Anne Baghot had another son, Thomas Baghot. 
Thomas Baghot married Anne Small, and left by her two 
children — Thom^is, who died s.p., and Elizabeth, who 
married Thomas Wathen, Esq., of King's Stanley. She left 
one only daughter, Jane, who married Thomas Edwards, 
of Bristol. Elizabeth Wathen was first cousin to the two 
old ladies, Grace Webb and Sarah Delabere, to whom 
Thomas Baghot Delabere, their brother, left the whole of 
his estates when he died in 1821. These two sisters in 
extreme old age by deed of gift made Thomas Edwards 
(who had married Jane Wathen) their residuary legatee, 
who thus on their decease in 1829 inherited Southam House 
and all their property. 

This Thomas Edwards left the estate, then valued at 
;^i,50o a year, to his son John Edwards in 1835. Mr. John 
Edwards was in Holy Orders and Vicar of Prestbury. He 
married Elizabeth, daughter of John Milford, Esq., of 
Exeter. He assumed the name and arms of Baghot 
Delabere by royal license in 1879, and died in 1885, and 
was succeeded by his son, the Rev. John Baghot Delabere, 
formerly Vicar of Prestbury, who is yet alive, and Vicar of 
St. Mary's, Buxted, in Sussex. 

In 1839 Southam House was sold to the late Lord 
Ellenborough, but a portion of the estate is still held by 
the Rev. John Baghot Delabere. 

I shall hope on some future occasion to give in these 
pages a pedigree of the ancient family of the Delaberes. 



(A Lecture.) 

As you are all aware, in recent years there has been a 
great alteration in the received view as to what constitutes 
history. We are gradually discovering that it is not only 
the great battles, or the events in the lives of kings, which 
are worthy of being narrated by historians, but an effort 
is being gradually made to try to understand the life, the 
customs, the beliefs, the amusements, and the cares of the 
people ; for if these are understood, not only can we regard 
history more sympathetically, but we are much more able 
to understand the conditions which produced the battles 
and revolutions which our forefathers alone thought worthy 
of narration. 

So now a personal record of any kind is eagerly seized 
on. We now rejoice that the Paston family did not destroy 
their papers, and that Ralph Verney was so painfully 
methodical and careful in keeping all his letters. The 
illuminations of such books as the Luttrell Psalter or of 
illuminated copies of Froissart are carefully studied and 
reproduced, and help to bring us to the absolute daily life 
of our forefathers — their toils, their luxuries, their simple 
weeds or gorgeous robes and head-dresses. In England we 
are singularly fortunate in our literature. In the pages or 
Chaucer we possess an absolutely inimitable picture of every 
grade of society, told in such a masterly way that all the 
characters pass before us as though in real life. Here the 
temptation to transgress my limits is almost unconquerable, 


Transactions for the Year 1905. 

for as most of you know this great poet is one of my very 
dearest friends. Besides Chaucer we have Langland's Vision 
of William Concerning Pievs the Plowman, which in a way is 
even more instructive. Chaucer describes all his characters 
from without, if one may so say, without in any way denying 
his glorious human sympathy with his characters, while 
the author of the Vision speaks of himself — sees life from^ 
within. In the Vision we have numberless details not 
only of methods of life and work, but what is almost of 
greater importance — of the beliefs held by the earnest, 
sober, deep-thinking men of the people, strong in their 
faith in the Church and in Christ, yet stirred to wrath and 
almost hopeless melancholy at the endless abuses both 
among the people themselves and in Church and State. 
There is one other book which I cannot pass over in 
silence, namely Pievs the Plowman's Cvede, which gives one of 
the most vivid pictures we have of the glories of such a 
monastic church as that of the Benedictine convent of 
Gloucester. I have stated that attention has been drawn 
to the pictures of daily life in the illuminated books ; studies 
too have been made of the wonderful carvings which remain 
in our churches, and more particularly in the west fronts 
which are the glories of the cathedrals in France. 

Here in Gloucester we are fortunate in possessing no 
small number of these carvings in the misereres of the 
beautiful stalls, which stalls of course are familiar to you 
all, but which the photographs on the screen will recall to 
your memories. Of the stalls and their canopies I will not 
say. much. You have heard from our General Secretary 
who erected them and at what date. They are Early 
Perpendicular, but with richer mouldings than is generally 
found in that style. Each canopy with its pinnacles has 
a very rich effect, and when seen in perspective make a 
good show ; but there is very little variety — each stall is 
exactly like its neighbour — and there is not that over- 
flowing imagination and invention which is seen in the 
finest Decorated work. It is in the misereres that the

originality is shown ; they are fifty-eight in number, some 
fourteen being new, made when the choir was restored in 
1873. A great deal of work, too, was then done in repairing 
the canopies, which were either very imperfect or had been 
repaired with poor wood, which already showed signs of 

As to the new carvings, one of my great difficulties has 
been to find from where the designs have been taken. The 
suggestions for some, as I shall show you, have been taken 
from the stalls at Worcester, but some I have not been 
fortunate enough to trace. 

I shall not take these carvings in the order in which 
they are placed in the cathedral, but shall arrange them 
in groups, and shall take each group in turn ; but before 
I begin I should like to discuss the question. Why is it 
that there are so few religious subjects represented, and 
folk -tales, domestic scenes, and fabulous monsters are so 
numerous ? Personally I have never found a satisfactory 
explanation. First let us remember that the choir of a 
monastic church was for the use solely of the monks. So 
far as I know, it would be a most unusual thing for a 
layman even to come into the choir. We know that 
laym.en were shown round the cathedral at Canterbury 
from Erasmus's most interesting epistle describing his visit, 
and that he was taken into the choir ; but he specially 
mentions that he had letters of recommendation from the 
archbishop. I should suppose that here in Gloucester a 
layman would be shown round the ambulatory to see the 
shrine of the Martyr King — notice, by the way, that the 
screen does not come round the outer side — and the different 
chapels, but I should very much doubt if he would be 
allowed to go into the choir. The carvings there must 
have been for the delectation of the monks alone. Now 
who carved them ? Did the monks themselves do any 
manual work in the way of building or carpentry? We 
have the tradition that the vaulting of the nave was done 
by the monks themselves, yet this is mentioned as some- 

64 Transactions for the Year 1905. 

thing remarkable, the presumption being that it was quite 

There was a good deal of structural building going on 
at Bury St. Edmunds during the time of Jocelin de 
Brakelond, and yet he never refers to the brethren working 
at it ; so, as far as I can learn, we are in complete 
darkness as to who were the carvers or who suggested 
the designs. Can we attribute the satirical scenes — which 
are almost absent at Gloucester — to the monks, or to the 
workmen who were laughing at their employers ? This 
seems to me of the two the more likely. Personally I am 
not satisfied that VioUet-le-duc's often-quoted explanation 
of the sanction of the bishops of the buffoonery of the 
mock services in the cathedrals, which is — that the bishops 
preferred to throw their churches open to the crowd and 
to permit such jollities within the consecrated walls rather 
than run the risk of dangerous fermentation of popular 
ideas outside ; I say, I doubt if this explanation would 
in any way apply to the grotesque carvings of a Benedictine 
abbey in England. The great French cathedrals were 
secular churches built by the enthusiastic laity, and were 
in every way different from the exclusive sanctuaries of 
the regulars, which so many of our English cathedrals and 
abbeys were. 

It is very fortunate that we possess the Fabric Rolls of 
Exeter Cathedral, which was a church of Secular Canons.. 
The misereres there are said to be the earliest in England, 
and are most excellent ; some few are satirical or refer to 
folk-tales. In these Rolls there are noted the definite 
payments made to the workmen, and even occasionally 
the name of the workman ; e.g. Robert Galmeton was 
paid for making the bishop's throne ad tascum ; again, 
"for carving 6 statues for the bishop's seat, 32 shillings" 
(date 13 16-17). So I think this is sufficient evidence that the 
carving there, at any rate, was done by workmen who seem 
also to have had a free hand in their designs. 

I shall now show you the slides which have been

made for the Society from the excellent negatives taken 
by Mr. Dugdale. The Society is indebted more than 
I can say for the work he has done, both in taking the 
photographs and making these slides. ' Personally I am most 
grateful to him for the very liberal way in which he has kept 
me supplied with prints both for my own study and also 
for those which I was able to send away to friends who I 
thought might be able to help me in the interpretation of the 
carvings. I propose to show them in groups according to their 
subjects, and will begin with a series of recumbent figures. 

No. 55. A very rudely-cut figure with hands together in 
attitude of prayer. 

Nos. 42 and 53. Duplicates of a figure in a cap, which 
seems to have a hood attached at the back, the right hand 
supporting the bracket and holding a staff to help him to 
maintain his position ; he seems to be in a loose surcoat or 
mantle, with a tight-fitting garment, the cotehardie or tunic, 
shown underneath at the neck, and pointed shoes. 

No. 25. A crowned figure with long hair, the head 
supported by the right hand, clothed in the same way. 

No. 47. A more interesting male figure, but difficult to 
describe ; he is clothed in a tight-fitting cotehardie or tunic, 
buttoned, as was usual, all down the front ; round the hips is 
buckled the military belt, which supports in front his anlace 
and gypciere ; he wears the tight-fitting hood of the period 
(that of Chaucer), which has a richly-embroidered "dagged" 
border, and from which hangs a flat, long, narrow liripipe, 
the upper end of which is broken. 

I propose now to go on to religious subjects, representa- 
tions either of Biblical scenes or those affecting dogmas or 
celestial beings. , • ^ , 

No, 39. Representing the Temptation of Adam and Eve, 
a modern carving, the original of which is taken from one of 
the stalls at Worcester, a slide of which I show. This is 
very interesting. In the centre is the serpent, winged, 
twining round the tree, with a human head. Eve on the left 
holds an apple in her right hand, while with the left she is

66 Transactions for the Year 1905. 

offering the apple to the deviL Adam is also eating. In the 
modern one at Gloucester she is offering the apple to Adam, 
but none of the three are eating. 

Nos. 49 and 13 (new). The Sacrifice of Isaac, the old one 
being a modification of the corresponding stall at Worcester. 
The old one is much the more interesting of the two ; in 
both Isaac is pleading for mercy— in the new one on a heap 
of faggots, in the old one on a well-vested altar ; while in 
the ancient example the angel, who is appearing to the right 
of Abraham, appears to be holding the upper part of the 
sword in his left hand ; in both the ram caught in the thicket 
is shown. 

I show a very early woodcut of this subject from 
Mandeville's Travels. 

No. 20 is a new carving, and is difficult to interpret. 
This again is modified from Worcester, which I show. I 
think it is a representation of Moses rebuking the Israelites. 
Evidently the figure on the left is Moses, as you see by the 
horns on his head and the tables of the law which he holds 
in his left hand. On the right are three figures, a man 
stooping forward with the palms of the hands supine as 
though in a deprecating manner ; behind is a mother turning 
tenderly to her child, whom she is embracing with her right 
hand. In the. Worcester carving Moses is represented on 
the right, Aaron possibly on the left, God the Father 
encouraging Moses in the background, while in front is the 
object of idolatry, which, however, is not a calf, but a bird 
on a pedestal.^ 

No, 4. Samson and Delilah. Samson lies asleep at full 
length, enveloped in a long and loose robe ; he is represented 
as a judge, and is of enormous size as compared to Delilah. 
She, with a pair of shears, is cutting off a lock of Samson's 
hair which is long, flowing over his shoulders ; she is in 
flowing drapery, standing partly ,behind tlie sleeper and 
stooping over him. Above them are three roses. 

1 Probably intended to represent a cherub ; compare Ezekiel i. 10 
and X. 14. — Ed. 

The Misereres in Gloucester Cathedral. 


No. 15. A very interesting and often reproduced carving. 
Wright, in his History of Grotesque in Art, describes it as 
follows : " Represents the three shepherds astonished at the 
appearance of the star which announced the birth of the 
Saviour of mankind." Like the three kings, the shepherds 
to whom this revelation was made were always in the Middle 
Ages represented as three in number ; here the costume is 
remarkably well depicted, even to the details with the various 
implements appertaining to their profession, most of which 
are suspended from their girdles. They are drawn with 
much spirit, and even the dog is represented as an especially 
active partaker in the scene. 

Note the hood which each wears, as well as the hat which 
is often drawn, as here, hanging at the neck. Each carries 
a crook. They wear high boots fastened with buttons, 
and long tunics, and carry at the girdle two or three 
implements, one at least of which is the tar box which 
was used for dressing the sheep. We have this alluded 
to in the Vision (x. 259-263). Speaking of the bishops, who 
are bad shepherds of their flocks, he says : — 

For meny (^^^!j^fyi) wolves, have broke into foldes 

Thyne (^^^ogr^) blynde that bryngeth forth thy lambren. 

Dispergentur oves — thy dogge dar nat berke ; 
The tarre is untydy, that to thyne sheep bylongeth. 
Hure salve is of supersedeas in someneres boxes 
(a writ to stay proceedings). 

No. I (new). The Adoration of the Magi. A very 
charming carving. Not a definite copy. 

No. 46. Presentation of a youth to the altar ; possibly 
our Lord by St. Joseph and the Virgin. On the altar stands 
a candlestick, 1 while from above hangs a lamp. This again 
is adapted from Worcester. 

No. 7. Coronation of the Virgin. Modern, copied from

Chester. May I remind you how this subject was at this 
period becoming more and more frequently represented ? 
As you know, the east window, one of the glories of the 
cathedral, represents this subject, while at the extreme end 
of the nave over the west window we have it again celebrated 
in the centre boss of the vaulting built by Abbot Morwent in 
1420-37, a slide of which I show. 

No. 24 (new). Two Angels playing, taken from Chester. 

Leaving now these simpler carvings, I enter upon a very 
much more difficult subject, namely Monsters — by which I 
mean the union of two separate animals, as human-headed 
dragons, or semi-human beasts such as mermaids, and Real 
Animals such as pelicans, almost all of which have some 
deeper significance behind them ; but it is not at all easy for 
me in my limited time to deal with this subject adequately. 

The natural history of the Middle Ages had many different 
sources, and combined them all. Firstly, the Bible and other 
Hebrew literature, then the classical authors, more particu- 
larly the Natural History of Pliny (a stupendous tome full 
of the most remarkable collection of extraordinary stories we 
can imagine), then Egyptian cults and beliefs. In addition 
to these there was an Eastern invasion, evidence of which is 
found in ^sop's Fables, The Golden Legend, and Bavlaani and 
Joshaphat, shown by stories of sphinxes, human-headed bulls, 
and so on. These were combined in the Alexandrian School 
of Philosophy and Theology, where all these fabulous animals 
and their stories were explained as having an allegorical 
meaning. Gradually an enigmatical and mystical relation 
between the world of men and the world of beasts was 
established. Origen, for instance, when speaking of the 
creation, explains the creatures that fill the waters, the fowls 
(ff the air, and the creeping things, as signifying good or evil 
thoughts and feeling, and calls attention to the great whales, 
as symbolising violent passions and criminal impulses. 

And so arose the collection of the current opinions and 
ancient traditions concerning the characteristics of animals 
and plants known as the Physiologus, compiled b)^ an 

The Misereres in Gloucester Cathedral. 69 

Alexandrian Greek somewhere about the fourth century. 
This book was translated into many languages and influ- 
enced the whole of Europe, and was 'the foundation of the 
Bestiaries, or books on animals, which are so common in 
mediaeval literature. 

I cannot do better than quote the words of Professor 
Evans in his book on Animal Symbolism in Ecclesiastical Archi- 
tecUire as showing the development of this subject : — 

" Very early in the Christian era this traditional material 
infused itself into patristic literature, and thus gradually 
passed from rhetorical decoration in Christian homilies to 
artistic decoration in Christian architecture, where it found 
expression in fantastic and often monstrous forms, which 
can be understood only by tracing them to their sources 
in the superstitious notions of the ancient, and especially 
Oriental peoples. With the growth of religious scepticism 
and schism this symbolism gradually and imperceptibly 
merged into satire, so that it is often difficult to draw a 
line of demarcation between them. Mediaeval humour was 
coarse rather than keen, and better skilled in wielding 
bludgeons than in brandishing rapiers." 

I should add to this that of course in each country 
these traditions would be modified and added to by the 
beliefs and superstitions already existing in that country. 
As I shall show you, we have evidence of the addition of 
one Norse legend at least here in our cathedral. 

It will make this subject plainer if I treat some of the 
next few carvings more in detail, and I propose to take 
one representing the elephant first. 

No. 35. Representing an elephant ; on its back an 
embattled howdah, like a castle with two stories, which 
rests on a cloth secured by a broad belt beneath. Evidently 
the carver had never seen an elephant, for he has given 
him feet like a cart-horse, more or less a horse's head, and 
a large flowing tail, also like that of a horse. 

A bestiary of about the same date as these carvings has 
been printed by the Early English Text Society [An old 


Transactions for the Year 1905. 

English Miscellany, edited by Rev. Richard Morris, 1872), 
and let us see what is said in the account of the elephant. 
The first two lines please me very much — 

Elpes arn in Inde riche 

On bodi borlic berges-ilike (like a mountain). 

There is something very delightful and elephantine in the 
alhteration of the second line. 

Then follows an allusion to the belief that the elephant 
has no joints to its limbs, and therefore cannot kneel down ; 
hence this animal was long regarded as an emblem of the 
kingly rank — 

That he ne falle nither not 
That is most in here (his) thought 
For he ne haven no lith (joints) 
That he mugen risen with. 
How he restheth him this der (beast) 
When he walketh wide,

And leneth him trustlike thereby

Then comes the significacio — 

"Thus did Adam fall through a tree; Moses in vain 
tried to raise him, afterwards the prophets ; a cry went 
up to heaven, and Christ came down to their aid ; He 
became man, and by death went as it were under Adam 
and raised him out of ' dim. hell.' " 

It is an odd thing that Caesar in his Commentaries tells 
the same story of the elk. 

I throw on the screen a very early woodcut of an 
elephant with its castle from the first printed edition of 
Mandeville's Travels, which was written at about the 
period in which these stalls were carved. He says. — 

" And that same King of Talonache hath 14,000 
Olyfantes or mo which be all tame, and they be fedde 
of the men of his country, for his pleasure, because that 
he may have them redy to his handes when he hath any 
warre against any king or prince, and then he doth putten 
upon their backs castles and men of warre, as use is of 
these landes and lykewyse do other kings and princes 

I show an extremely interesting carving of an elephant 
from the stalls at Exeter, very early in date (1224-44), which 
is clearly a copy from life. The large ears, the great tusks, 
the upturned trunk are full of character, and the elephant 
is evidently an African one. Nov/ we know that in 1254 


Transactions for the Year 1905. 

St. Louis of France gave an elephant to Henry III., and 

Matthew Paris describes the flocking of people to see the 

mighty beast on its way to London, and we have a drawing 

of the elephant by Matthew Paris himself ; it is possible 

that the carver may himself have seen this elephant. 

No. 16. The Pelican "in her piety." The story of the 

pelican does not occur in the bestiary I have quoted from, 

but it is a well-known Christian symbol. The bird has at 

the tip of its long bill a crimson spot, and this gave rise 

to the belief amongst the olden naturalists that this bird, 

while really pluming its feathers, was feeding its young with 

its own blood; it is therefore the symbol of loving sacrifice. 

Dante speaks of our Lord as " Nostro pelicano." "The 

pelican, whose sons are nursed with bloude, stabbeth deep 

her breast, self martheresse through fondness of her brood." 

So Hamlet (iv. 5) — 

And like the kind, life rend'ring pelican, 
Refresh them with my blood. 

A variation in the pelican legend may occasionally be met 
with where, instead of the young being nourished by the 
blood of the bird, their dead bodies are restored by it 
to Hfe. 

" The pelicane fervently loveth her young byrdes, yet 

when they ben haughtie, and beginning to wax bote, they 

smite her in the face, and wound her, and she smiteth them 

and siayeth them, and after three days she mourneth for 

them, and then striking herself in the side till the blood 

run out, she sparpleth it upon their bodies and by virtue 

thereof they quicken again." ^ 

1 The first two lines of the sixth verse of the hymn by St. Thomas 
Aquinas {c. 1260) on the Holy Eucharist, commencing " Adoro te, devote, 
latens Deltas, " run thus — 

Pic pellica7ic, Jesn domine 

Me immnndum munda tuo sanguine. 

In Bishop Woodford's translation they are rendered — 

Fountain of f^oodness, Jesti, Lord and God, 
Cleanse us unclean with Thy most cleansing Blood, 

because the bishop used the form given in Dr. Newman's Hymns from the 
Parisian Breviary, in which the first line is thus given — 

O Jons puritatis, Jesu Domine.

The Misereres in Gloucester Cathedral. 


No. 50. The Dragon, a four-footed beast with the wings,^ 
head and feet of an eagle, is the commonest of all monsters, 
and is used most frequently as the symbol of " the dragon,, 
that old serpent, which is the devil.' I could occupy the 
whole evening with extraordinary stories of dragons who, 
among other peculiarities, though it is not commonly known,, 
are great enemies to elephants. " For the elephant's blood 
is exceeding cold, and therefore the dragons be wonderful 
desirous thereof to refresh and cool themselves therewith,, 
during the parching and bote season of the year, and to this 
purpose they lie under the water waiting their time to take 
the elephants at a vantage when they are drinking, when 
they catch fast hold of their trunk, and they have not so 
soon clasped and entangled it with their taile but they set 
their venomous teeth in the elephant's eare (the only part 
of their body which they cannot reach unto with their trunk) 
and so bite it hard. Now these dragons are so big withall 
that they be able to receive all the elephant's blood. 
Thus are they sucked drie, until they fall down dead, and 
the dragons again drunken with their blood are squised 
under them, and both die together." (Holland's Pliny, 1601,. 
p. 199b.) 

No. 34. Lion combating dragon. The same idea — the 
lion, the noblest of beasts, representing the principle of 
good combating evil. The bat-like wings of the dragon 
are well shown. 

Noc 45. The same combat. Victory uncertain.

Church, Lincolnshire. 

No. 23 (new, from Winchester). Two dragons with 
necks joining in one common jester's head with cowl and 
ass's ears. 

There is a carving somewhat like this at Exeter.

and legs bare, wearing a long, loose garment gathered in 
at the neck and with tight sleeves, is thrusting a spear into 
the mouth and piercing the head of a four-footed, bat-winged 
dragon, the spear-head and shaft are seen coming out at the 
shoulder. This may perhaps represent St. Michael slaying 
the devil. 

No. 14. A mermaid holding a large fish in each hand. 
Both the fishes and the piscine portion of the mermaid 
have loose, waving fins, which give a very graceful and un- 
dulating effect to the group. An exceedingly graceful design.

mermaids ?

And the moral is : Many men are like the mermaids ; they 
speak fair, but their deeds are evil. 

It is interesting to find that Changer knew his natural 
history, for in the Nun's Priesfs Tale he says — 

And Chauntecleer so free 
Soong merrier than the mermayde in the sea ; 
For Physiologus seith sikerly, 

How that they syngen wel and myrily. — (4459-4562.) 

No. II introduces us to some more compound beasts. 
Two monsters, the one on the right has fore limbs ending in 
human hands and hind limbs ending in three-clawed feet, 
with a man's face under a conical cap ; the other has a 
female human face, hooded, and four three-clawed feet. 
The bodies of both terminate in long lions' tails. 

No. 31. Two wingless, four-legged monsters with dogs' (?) 
heads, fighting, the victorious one biting the back of the head 
of the other, which is protruding his tongue in disgust. Both 
have a mane running the whole length of the body and lions' 

No. 36. Combat between an eagle and a four-footed 
beast, possibly a panther. 

No. 40. A very heavy, cumbersome horse, on which rides 
a four-footed animal with a curling tail and semi-human 
face. Query a lioness, or perhaps a monkey. 

We now come to a few slides illustrative of popular 
stories, mostly from ^sop. 

No. 41. A lion approaching a fox stealthily, who is 
holding out his fore limbs deprecatingly. I think this is an 
allusion to the fable of the lion " which sometime faygned 
himself seke and when the beestes knew that the lyon was 
seke they would go alle to visite and see him, as their king, 
and incontinent as the beestes entryd in to his hows for to 
see and comforte him he devoured and ate them. But the 
foxes were too wary to follow their example ; the lion 
demanded of them why they would not come within, and 
one of the foxes sayd to hym : ' We know well by thy traces 
that all the beestes which have entryed in to thy hows came

not out agairie, and also if we entryed within no more should 
we come ageyne.' " 

No. 29. A rudely-carved figure of a man and donkey 
embracing, which I take to be an illustration of the fable of 
the ass and the young dog in ^sop. 

If you remember, " the asse was envyous of the dogge 
being in such favour with his lord, for he said to himself: 
' Yf my lord and his meyne love this myschaunt besle 
because that he chereth and maketh feste to everybody, by 
greater reason they ought to love me yf I make cheer to 
them. Fro henceforth I shall take my disport and shall 
make joy and play with my lord.' " If you remember, the 
result was disastrous: "The lorde's servants thenne took 
anone grate staves and began to smyte upon the poor asse 
and so corryged and bete him that after he had no luste ne 
courage to daunse ne make to nonne chere ne feste." 

No. 9. An owl in the centre standing on a stem of a 
tree, the branches of which support a pair of birds on each 
side ; they all have their beaks open and appear to be 
chattering at the owl which they surround. This may be an 
illustration of the habit that birds have of surrounding and 
bullying the owl if he by chance comes out during the day; 
or it may be a symbolical allusion to the Jews, who in the 
Physiologus are compared to the owl, which cannot endure the 
presence of the sun, just as the Jews could not endure the 
coming of "the dayspring from on high," loving darkness 
rather than light because their deeds were evil. 

No. 17 (taken from Worcester?). May be in illustration 
of a story, so I have classed it here, but I have not been 
able to identify it. It represents a curious monster with 
hind legs only, large ears, a curious beaded cord (?) starting 
from the root of its nose and curling round its neck, with a 
huge mouth, down which the head of a man dressed in a 
loose tunic fastened by a beaded belt has disappeared— 
perhaps Jonah. If the figure had been that of a female it 
might be Saint Margaret, who in the course of her eventful life, 
among other unhappy experiences, was swallowed by thedevil.

No. 3. A carving of the slaying of a giant by a knight. 
I have no clue as to what particular knight or giant this 
represents, though it has been said to^.be "Valentine and 
Orson." This is one of the most celebrated carvings in the 
cathedral, and has often been reproduced. The knight is 
armed with a hawberk, which is covered with a short 
surcoat open in front, and a comailed basinet with the 
ventaile or visor raised. On his left arm he holds his 
hollowed heart-shaped shield, and with his right hand he 
delivers a blow with his long straight sword at his opponent's 
throat. His limbs are defended by plate armour; he has 
shoulder roundels, and a narrow belt about his waist. He 
wears sollerets pointed and laminated, but without spurs ; 
his hawberk, as it is shown through the open jupon or 
surcoat below the waist, has a slit or slight opening in front. 
Standing by a tree with his back turned towards the knight, 
the giant turns his head, that he may look at his antagonist, 
whilst he aims a blow with the club which he holds in both 
hands. His head and neck are covered by a hood which 
covers his shoulders, and has a long pendant iiripipe ; he 
wears a tunic reaching to his knees, secured by a buckled 
waist belt, the sleeves having close-set buttons from the 
elbow to the wrist, sharply pointed shoes, and a long beard. 
On the other side of the knight stands his charger, barbed, 
and with saddle and bridle, patiently waiting till the combat 
is over. 

No. 48. The fox carrying off the goose. A very spirited 
carving, which of course brings to one's mind the delightful 
story that Chaucer put into the mouth of the nun's priest. 
I cannot resist the temptation of reading the very graphic 
account he gives of the hue and cry after the fox — 

This sely widowe, and eek her doghties two 
Herden these hennes crie and maken wo 
And out at dores sterten they anon 
And syen the fox toward the grove gon 
And bar upon his back the cock away, 
And cryden Out ! harrow ! and wely-away

No. 18. Group of figure riding a goat. This is new^ 
being copied from the original at Worcester, a sUde of 
which I show and describe. Female figure, nude, covered 
witli a large net of wide meshes gathered in about the 
neck ; she grasps the right horn of the goat with her right 
hand, and with her left hand holds a rabbit under 
the net. She is half mounted, the left leg being thrown 
across the goat, while she is still standing on the other ; the 
left horn of the goat, which is branched, is broken away. 

This is one of the most interesting of the series, and is a 
splendid instance of the method in which explanations are 
made. The idea has been started that it is supposed to 
represent the punishment of incontinence ; that for that 
crime a woman was made to ride through the streets clad 
only in a net, on a goat, repeating well-known coarse rhymes 
that proclaim her shame. 

This is a delightful piece of guess-work without a shadow 
of evidence that such a punishment ever existed, the real 
truth being that it is an illustration of a very old Norse folk- 
tale, of which there are several different versions. I shall

have to select one, but really this carving has points told in 
three several versions. 

The Story of Queen Disa. 

When King Frey, or, according to other accounts, a King 
Sigtrud, far back in the times of heathenism, ruled in the 
North, the population, during a long peace, had so greatly 
increased that one year on the coming of winter the crops 
of the preceding autumn were already consumed. The king 
therefore summoned all the commonalty to an assembly for 
the purpose of finding a remedy for the impending evil, when 
it was decreed that all the old, the sickly, the deformed, and 
the idle should be slain and offered to Odin. When one of 
the king's councillors, named Siustin, returned from the 
assembly to his dwelling in Uppland, his daughter Disa 
inquired of him what had there taken place, and as she was 
in all respects wise and judicious, he recounted to her what 
had been resolved on. On hearing it, she said she could 
have given better counsel, and wondered that among so many 
men there was found so little wisdom. These words reached 
at length the ears of the king, who was angry at her boldness 
and conceit, and declared he would soon put her to her 
wit's end. He promised to take her to his counsel, but on 
condition that she should come to him not on foot nor on 
horseback, not driving nor sailing, not clad nor unclad, not 
in a year nor a month, not by day nor by night, not in the 
moon's increase nor wane. Disa, in her perplexity at this 
order, prayed to the goddess Frigg for counsel, and then 
went to the king in the following manner. She harnessed 
two young men to a sledge, by the side of which she caused 
a goat to be led ; she held one leg in the sledge and placed 
the other on the goat, and was herself clad in a net. Thus 
she came to the king neither walking nor riding, nor driving, 
nor sailing, neither clad nor unclad. She came neither in a 
current year nor month, but on the third day before Yule, 
one of the days of the solstice, which were not reckoned as 
belonging to the year itself, but as a complement, and in like

manner might be said not to belong to any month. She 
came neither in the increase nor in the wane, but just at the 
full moon ; neither by day nor by night, but in the twilight. 
The king wondered at such sagacit}^, ordered her to be 
brought before him, and found so great delight in her con- 
versation, beauty, and understanding that he made her his 
queen. ^ 

Nos. 28 and ig (new). A male figure riding on a goat, 
the right hand holding one of the horns ; the other, a horn 
which he is either blowing or putting to his lips. Behind 
him hangs down a hare or rabbit. He also wears a very 
large hood, with a liripipe hanging from the back of the 
head, and which comes down in a loose manner right over 
the shoulders. He seems to wear a loose surcoat or tunic. 
The lower limbs appear to be bare ; the foot is in a stirrup, 
and he is in the attitude of turning to look backwards. 

I have not been able to identify this subject. 

There follow three carvings, one new, which are very 
similar, and I think all refer to the same story. 

No. 8 (new). Two griffins segreant. Addressed between 
them as though rising from between their wings a male figure 
crowned, with wavy hair, holding in each hand to right and 
left a staff or rod, like two sceptres, a boar's head on each 
staff at which the grifBns are pecking. 

No. 26. King seated on a throne; his crown, robe, and 
wavy adjustment of hair resembling effigy of Edward H. 
In his right hand and on his left he holds upright a slender 
staff, carrying what appears to be the leg — from the knee to 
hoof — of a deer ; with these deer's legs held in a horizontal 
position over their heads are two griffins segreant, they have 
collars from which chains hang which are attached to the 
king's throne. 

No. 22. King seated on a throne, with his right hand 
raised and forefinger extended as though demanding attention, 
the other on his lap; on either side a griffin segreant with 
bands round their necks, but no chains, standing on the arms

of the chair in which the king is seated, with their beaks 
near the king's ears, as though whispering to him. 

These three (?) carvings represent i-^' Alexander's Journey to 
the Sky.'' 

The legendary history of Alexander is derived from a 
work written in Greek at Alexandria about a.d. 200, called 
Pseudo-Callisthenes. This was translated into Latin by the 
Archpriest Leo at Naples in the tenth century, when the 
particular incident here illustrated was added. 

There are numerous manuscripts and printed editions 
in many languages, the history being evidently very popular. 

The story runs that Alexander, arriving at the end of 
the world, pondered whether this were indeed the end 
of the world and the place where the sky slopes down 
to it. "I wished," he says, "therefore, to search out the 
truth, so I ordered two of the birds of that place to be 
caught. ... So when two of them were secured I gave 
orders that no food be given them for three days. And 
on the third day I ordered a piece of wood to be con- 
structed, in shape like a yoke, and a basket to be fastened 
in the midst thereof, with two spears set up therein, seven 
cubits in length, having horse's liver at the top. Imme- 
diately the birds flew up to devour the liver, and I went up 
with them in the air so far that I thought I was near the 
sky. And I shivered all over by reason of the exceeding 
coldness of the air that arose from the birds' wings." 

He meets a winged creature with a human face, v/hich 
warns him to desist, lest he be devoured by his own birds ; 
so he turns the spears downwards, and the birds descend. 
He beholds as it were a great serpent (the sea), and a 
small round threshing-floor (the earth) in the midst thereof, 
and alights eventually ten days' journey from the place 
where he had left his army. 

Note. — In the Burlington Magazine of February, 1905, 
there is an article by Mr. Campbell Hodgson on this journey, 
illustrated by early miniatures from French MSS., and also 
a reproduction of a unique woodcut by Schaufelein in the

We now come to hunting scenes. 

Nos. 27 and 21 (new). Rider on a mule wearing spotted 
tunic and hood, which comes over his shoulder with long 
liripipe extending straight behind him ; sleeves tight with 
elbow lappets flying out behind. He has a cap on his 
head (?), tight leggings, and pointed shoes with rouelle 
spurs. He holds the reins in his left hand and a long whip 
in the right. The saddle, saddle cloth, stirrups, stirrup 
leathers, bridle and reins, with the enriched bit, are clearly 
expressed. In front of the rider is a hawk in the act of 
striking a large duck on the wing. Attendant on foot behind 
the rider in tight jerkin reaching to mid-leg, hood with liri- 
pipe and shoes, and beating a tabor. 

No. 38. Horseman riding at full speed. He wears a 
large mantle flowing behind him, a loose tunic, tight leggings, 
pointed shoes and rouelle spurs ; his sword or anelate is 
broken. He wears a cap, rather like a cap of maintenance, 
turned up over his face, fastened under the chin, and crowned 
with a low feather (?). He holds his reins with his left hand ; 
with his right he raises to his mouth a large hunting horn. 
The horse has an ornamental bit and bridle and single rein ; 
a saddle girth is shown, and the straps pass over the chest 
and under the tail. A dog is running under the horse. 

No. 54. Deer stalker, shooting with a long bow at a stag, 
again giving the expression of rapid movement. He wears 
a loose tunic and hood. The short sleeves of the tunic show 
the tight sleeves, close buttoned below, of his under jerkin. 
On his right side attached to his belt is a sheaf of " cloth 
yard" arrows. The shoes are sharply pointed. Extending 
behind him is his long rapier-like weapon, or it may be his 
sharp-pointed staff. 

There are two slides representing chivalry. 

No. 12. Knight riding full speed, bending forward on 

The Misereres in Gloucester Cathedral. 


his charger's neck. His helmet is cylindrical and closed, 
his shield is advanced before his face, his long surcoat is 
flowing behind him ; he wears rouelle spurs and holds a 
drawn sword in his right hand. The horse is fully barbed, 
and its face is protected by a "face crest." 

Notice close to the horse's head a winged and horned 
imp. This may possibly be a representation of St. George 
and the dragon. 

No. 52 (copied from Worcester). The Tournament. 
Single combat of knights. Two knights mounted, clad in 
complete plate-armour and joupons, which are elaborately 
jagged and embroidered. They wear rouelle spurs and 
helmets with the visors down, and the faces are well carved. 
Each has a shield with the notch in the upper side, on 
which the spear rested. The knight on the left is getting 
much the worst of it ; his horse is pushed back on its 
haunches, and the knight is evidently in a sore strait — so 
his squire thinks, who is equally lamentably overthrown. 
He has two tabors or drums, which he has been playing. 
The attendant of the victorious knight is complacently 
blowing a trumpet of peculiar shape. The horses' harness 
is most richly embroidered, but they wear no plate- 

Sports and Pastimes. 

No. 5. Bull-baiting. On the left a bear sitting up, 
with collar and chain ; on the right a dog, also sitting up, 
with a collar alone. On the extreme right there is the 
terror-stricken keeper ; he seems to have a cap on his head 
and no hood, and his body is clothed by a jerkin closely 
buttoned in front ; in his right hand he holds a stick. On 
the other side of the bear lie two hats. 

No. 57. Wrestlers. Two men, nude except kilts, are 
wrestling together, each one grasping the other by a short 
scarf passing round his antagonist's throat. 

No. 6. Tree in the centre, and on each side a man in 
the act of rushing towards another on the other side. Both 
have hoods, tunics (mantles ?), button sleeves, and sharply- 


Transactions for the Year 1905. 

pointed shoes. The man to left with long beard, his anelace 
or dagger hanging from his belt, his left hand stretched 
behind him, while with right hand crossing the stem of the 
tree he grasps the left hand of the other man. This other 
man with short-trmimed beard, his right hand outstretched 
behind him, with his left hand makes a thrust at the other 
with ]]is long anelace; part of the right arm is broken 

No. 33. Two youths playing with a large ball, wearing 
tight leggings and pointed shoes ; both have jupons reaching 
to the knee, jagged at the bottom, and buttoned with close-set 
buttons down the front ; their buckled belts sustain their 
gypcyeres (wallets) ; they wear their hoods, jagged or 
escalloped (and dosted) at the borders, and have very long 
and sharp liripipes hanging down behind. 

No. 32. Two youths, in same costume as the last, facing 
each other, playing with five balls or disks ; in the back- 
ground a rose tree with flowers and buds. 

No. 10. A lady in a garden. On each side is a tree with 
branches, &c. ; two birds sitting in the tree to the right and 
one to the left. The lady stands in the centre holding a 
branch with her left hand and some small object in her 
right, too small I fear to be a book. At her feet a dog is 
looking up at her. She w^ears a long robe with wide hanging 
sleeves ; on her head and falling over her shoulders a large 
hood, which is gathered up and fastened in front and thrown 
back on either side. 

No. 56. Subject unknown. To the left somewhat of the 
centre tlie ctem of a tree with branches, &c. On either side 
a boy (much mutilated). On the right is a woman advancing 
towards them with outstretched arms, carrying a small object 
in her right hand. She does not seem to wear a hood, but a 
kind of round cap on her head, and her robe fits much more 
loosely to her figure than in the last carving. On the extreme 
right and left in low relief lies a donkey. 

No. 44. In the centre is a tree; on either side of the 
stCiU a dog on his hind legs, with his fore paws on the stem,

barking (?) (the head is gone) at a fox among the branches. 
On the left a hunter kneehng on his right knee, wearing a 
tunic, belt and hood, shooting with his Ipng bow at the fox. 

Then lastly follow two scenes of husbandry. 

No. 30. Swine feeding in the back in a forest ; in the 
centre the stem of an oak tree with branches, amongst which 
are a squirrel and a bird. Under the tree a boar and sow 
are eating fallen acorns. On the extreme right is a dog. 

No. 51. Vintage. In the centre a vine with leaves and 
bunches of grapes. On either side stands a countryman ; 
that to the left is placing a bunch of grapes in a basket, 
which is held by his fellow, with his right hand, while with 
his left hand, which holds a knife, he is cutting off a bunch. 
His fellow on the right is holding the basket to receive the 
grapes with both hands. They are clothed in the same way 
exactly as the other similar figures, except that the one on 
the right seems to have no belt ; the other has tucked up the 
skirt of his jupon into his belt.

In the castle hall windows on the W. side there are a 
succession of shields representing the de Berkeleys and their 
alhances ; beginning with the coat of Denmark, from whose 
kings Hardinge is by tradition descended — of course this is 
an anachronism ; after which come several lords, who bore 
*' Gules a chevron argent," and the Berkeleys of Dursley, 
Argent a fess between three martlets sable"; whilst at the 
bottom of the first light is old Berkeley with an escutcheon of 
pretence, " Azure a saltire ermine," with, on scroll under- 
neath, " Joana de St. Maur." This is a puzzle; no old 
Berkeley in the pedigree was married to a St. Maur, and of 
course the coat is the husband's ; also it is not the St. Maur 
coat ; neither can I find a Joan St. Maur heiress. Again, if 
it is an error for Joan de Somery, who married Thomas de 
Berkeley, it is not the Somery coat, and I cannot find that 
she was an heiress, though possibly she might have been. 
Then on through Cornwall (error for Croun) Ferrers (the 
tinctures representing " Or and gules " are here, and in 
Noel especially, almost alike and so confusing), Zouch and 
Mortimer, the latter has the gyrons in chief based on the 
palets. The second window begins with the Berkeley coat, 
bearing the addition of ten crosses pattee as at the present 
day; Despencer, wife of Maurice de Berkeley; Berkeley 
with escutcheon of pretence really, quarterly, i and 4, 
"Gules a lion passant guardant argent crowned or," Lisle; 

" 2, Or a fess between two chevrons sable," Lisle; 3, 
" Argent a chevron gules," ? " Argent three bars gemelles 
azure," Pipard. The fourth Thomas Berkeley married

Margaret, only daughter of Warine de L'Isle, written 
" Insula," the old name, underneath. Mowbray with its 
quarterings, Brotherton, Warren, and^Segrave, brought in 
with one of James Berkeley's numerous wives. Whilst at the 
bottom is "Argent a fess dancetty sable," Elizabeth West, 
first wife of William, Marquis of Berkeley. The second 
light starts with Berkeley and " Gules a chevron ermine 
between three erefoils slipped argent,'' Baron Maurice the 
Lawyer, married Isabel Mead ; Berkeley with the chevron 
ermine, which denotes Catherine, daughter of Sir William 
Berkeley of Stoke Gifford, who was the wife of Maurice the 
Courtier; "Quarterly gules and vair a bend or," Eleanor, 
daughter of Sir Marmaduke Constable, and wife of Thomas 
Berkeley the Sheepmaster; finishing with "Argent six lions 
rampant sable," Ann Savage, the second wife of Thomas 
the Hopefull. The third window begins with Berkeley and 
the quartered coat of Ploward, for Katherine, third daughter 
of Henry Howard, and wife of Henry the Harmlesse. 
Berkeley with escutcheon of pretence, "Argent on a bend 
sable three roses of the field," Carey. This denotes the 
marriage of Sir Thomas Berkeley, K.B., with Elizabeth, sole 
heir of George Carey, second Lord Hunsdon, who were 
parents of George, Baron Berkeley, called the Traveller or 
Linguist. Berkeley with escutcheon of pretence, " Quarterly 
ermine and purpure (really gules)." The last George married 
Elizabeth, coheiress of Sir Michael Stanhope. Berkeley with 
escutcheon of pretence, really " Azure three quarterfoils in 
chief a boar passant or charged on shoulder with a cross 
pattee gules and a crescent for difference of the second." The 
first Earl, George, married Elizabeth, daughter and coheiress 
of John Massingberd of London. The second light begins 
with the marriage of Charles, second Earl, with " Or fretty 
gules (the tinctures look almost reversed) a canton ermine." 
Elizabeth, daughter of Baptist Noel, third Viscount Campden. 
The next coat, Lennox, " Quarterly, France, England, Scotland 
and Ireland, within a bordure compony argent and gules,

daughter of first Duke of Richmond, and wife of James, third 
Earl. Then the coat of Drax, " Chequy or and azure on a 
chief gules three ostrich feathers issuant in plume of the first, 
may be argent," Elizabeth, daughter of Henry Drax, being 
the wife of Augustus, fourth Earl. Whilst the last coat is, 
I suppose, the most interesting to record, as I doubt its 
existence anywhere else, it is false heraldry, but I will try 
and blazon it. " Per pale vert and gules a lion passant per 
pale entrailed of the first and argent, tail or between three 
annulets, i, entrailed likewise of the first; 2, argent; 3, per 
pale entrailed also of the first and as the 2 annulet." This 
coat is inscribed underneath, " Maria Cole Tudor, 1755," and 
of course is intended to represent the marriage of Frederick 
Augustus, fifth Earl, with Mary, daughter of William Cole, 
who generally went by the name of Miss Tudor. No wonder 
now new false coats arise, as it looks like a parody on the 
proper Cole, a per pale coat charged with a bull.

Most of Bigland's readings are there still; but there is one 
later. N. aisle. " Per pale or and ermine on a bend gules

Bigland's Guise and Lawrence are there ; but there are 
several shields of the following, Bigland's reading being 
slightly different, so I give them, as they may lead to correct 
identification. Quarterly. i. "Ermine a saltire gules," 
Jones, really Fitzgerald, from whom he is descended. 2. "Or 
a lion rampant also reguardant sable." The first would 
most probably be Mathew, the second more likely the Welsh 
coat of Gwaithvoed ; but Bigland read it as " Sable a lion 
rampant reguardant or," which would be Evans or Lloyd. 
3. " Argent a lion rampant sable debruised by a bend gules," 
this is also Bigland's reading ; this is generally Burnell, but 
I can find no connection. 4. " Paly of six argent and gules 
over all a lion rampant sable." I think this must be " Paly 
of eight," Griffith Maelor. Bigland says, "Paly of six or and 
gules," a query. 5. " Paly of six or and gules," more likely 
" Paly of eight," when it would be Ynyr.

On De la Bere monument. Quarterly of eight, i. De la

Bigland gives this, which he also says is on chimney-piece at 
Southam, but not the family. By its marshalling one would 
say it was the oldest coat, but the only one known like it is 
" Gules a chief chequy or and azure over ail a bend ermine," 
Hunsted, but I cannot find any connection between this 
family and the De la Beers or Kynardisley ; it does not come 
into the Gloucester or Hereford Visitations. 3. " Azure semee

Bigland gives this " Azure a lion rampant semee crosses

4. " Gules on a chief argent three martlets sable," Bigland 
Chabbenore. De la Bere or de Kynardisley pedigrees do 
not give any connection, but it most probably came in with 
the last. 5. " Gules three — Bigland says four, and reads the 
coat as "Paly of six argent and sable over all four bars gules' 
— compony (may be paly) argent and sable," Barry or 
Barre. Sir Kynard De la Bere married Jone, coheiress of 
her brother, Sir John Barre. 6. " Barry of six or and azure 
a bend gules," Penbruge. Bigland read it, " Paly, &c.," 
but names it Pembrug^, so most probably " Paly " was an 
error of his or the printer. 7. " Azure a fess wavy between 
six dolphins naiant embowed argent," Newman. Bigland 
read this shield as quarterly of nine, so 7 with him is 
" Chequy gules and or a fess ermine," Turberville. I may 
have overlooked this, and he most probably is right, or the

Bigland's reading. I should say the bendlets were gules and 
the cinquefoil in sinister chief sable, but he gives no family.

Below, Bigland says on three shields, De la Bere impaling 
Walweyne ; Huddleston; and Newman quartering 8 or 9

rate this is a variation, whether I read the charge for 
difference in the chief right or not. The cross raguly is 
evidently Lawrence, " Argent a cross raguly gules," which 
the second crest plainly shows : whether this proves his 
marriage with a Lawrence heiress or his ancestor's I cannot 
say, as he does not come into Burke's pedigrees.

Bigland gives a great number of coats in this church. I 
had no time to read any, but what there were were in the 
S. aisle. All these I expected to find in Mr. Sawyer's 
History of the Church, therefore he might well write a descrip- 
tion of the monuments, &c., with their arms, inscriptions and 
dates to be added as an Appendix to his work, for without 
these the history of the church is incomplete.

4. Slightly smaller than life-size. 

5. Coat of plate armour with ruff round the neck. Very 
full trunk hose ending with rosettes at the knee. The thighs 
are covered with armour plate in front. High boots to the 
knee with spur straps. 

8. The figure kneels at a small draped pedestal. There 
are pillars on each side supporting a canopy over which are 
the arms, " Argent, on a cross sable a leopard's head caboshed 
or," for Brydges. 161 5. 

Under the figure is the inscription on slate. The recess 
in which the figure kneels is blackened, thus throwing it 
into higher relief, but it is very high up on the wall, and it is 
consequently difficult to note all the details. There is a 
crest on esquire's helmet over the monument, a man's head 
from the shoulders in profile proper (really, "Vested paly of 
six argent and gules semee of roundles counterchanged "), 
wreathed gules and azure.

inches longer, of chain armour ; and above from the waist is 
a pleated apron-like covering open about four inches in the 
centre and only extending to the hips. There is a belt 
round the waist from which two straps hang at the left side 
carrying the sword. The high collar of mail terminates in a 
short ruff, and there are also small ones at the wrists. The 
hands are clasped in prayer, and there is a ring on the first 
finger of the right hand. There are traces of spur straps. 
The hair is close-cropped, and a small beard and moustache 
are worn. Round the shoulders and across the breast is a 
scarf crossed at the waist under the buckle of the belt. 

(2) The lady wears a full-pleated gown with high collar 
ending in a small ruff, and having tight sleeves with a slight 
puff at the top. The gown opens in front from the waist to 
show an underskirt with doubly corded hem. There is a 
folded girdle tied in front with two short ends. Round the 
shoulders and meeting on the breast is a double chain, from 
which hangs a long single chain from the girdle to within 
five inches of the hem of the skirt ; this terminates in a round 
ornament with diamond-shaped centre. On the head is a 
Mary Stuart cap sewn at the edges with beads. 

Under the effigy lies a folded cloak, the collar, placed flat, 
being under the head on the cushion. 

6. (i) Helm with orle and heraldic drapery. 

(2) Two flat rectangular cushions with tassels. 

7. (i) Nothing. (2) Stone slab. 

8. A panelled altar-tomb. The three panels on the north 
side contain in a wreath the arms, "Party per chevron, argent 
and azure, in chief two falcons rising or," for Stephens. On 
the east side are two panels, one containing the arms as 
before, and the other, quarterly ist and 4th, "A cinquefoil, 
and in chief a lion passant," for Fowler^ ; 2nd and 3rd, "On 
a bend three cross crosslets." 

1 Biglahd is the only authority for this being the arms of Fowler ; but 
he says the shield is Stephens impaling the quartered coat of Fowler ; 
whereas here it seems to be only the Fowler quartered coat in a separate 
panel ; if so, I feel inclined to think that it represents Ann Kerry, widow, 
whom Richard Stephens married secondly ^Rudder, p. 431). — F.

the tomb is that of Edward Stephens, who died 1587, and 
married Joan, daughter of Richard Fowler of Stonehouse.

<;onfined by a narrow girdle cut up in the front, under which 
two tunics are visible, one slightly longer than the other 
extending to the knee. These are also cut up a short 
distance in the front. His shield hangs at the left from a 
strap over the right shoulder. There is a wide belt buckling 
in front below the waist from which the sword hangs. There 
are spur straps on the feet. 

(2) The lady wears a gown with long pointed sleeves, 
beneath which are tight ones to the wrist. Her hair is 
padded at the sides, and she wears a wimple and kerchief, 
the latter has a fold coming from the back of the head to the 
front, where it is sewn down by a thread. The hands are 
clasped in prayer.

7. (i) Lion. (2) Dog. 

S. The figures lie in recesses of the wall on stone coffins 
under elaborately ornamented ogee canopies, the exposed 
sides of these coffins are relieved by quatrefoils. On the 
shield of the knight an eagle is displayed in the first quarter, 
Bigland says "in sinister chief." 

g. There is no inscription ; but these tombs are so 
evidently part of the original design of the transept in which 
they lie, that the whole building must be regarded as a 
memorial of the personages represented by these effigies. 

Bigland says, " In the reign of Richard 11. (1382) Sir John 
de la Mere, and Maud his wife, rebuilt the south transept." A 
reference to the Inquisitiomm Post Mortem shows that in 

5 Richard II. (1581) Robertus de la Mere died seized of 
lands, &c., in Wilts, Herts, Devon, Herford, Oxon, and of 
lands, &c., " at Munechenhampton, in Gloucestershire." In 

6 Henry IV. (1404) "Matilda Uxor Roberti de la Mere, 
Chivaler" died seized of these lands. From these facts it 
appears that it was Robert, and not John de la Mere, who 
with his wife Matilda built the transept, and whose effigies 
lie under the large window. 

The arms of the De la Meres are as given in Edmonson's 
Heraldry very, various, but amongst others occur "three 
eagles" and " a lion passant." A pavement of encaustic 
tiles was found in 1842 underneath the stone pavement of 
this transept, the alternate tiles of which bore a lion passant 
and an eagle displayed. 

11. Tips of noses and fingers gone. Parts of the canopy 
have been restored. 

12. In the south wall of the south aisle. 

13. Lysons, plate xxxvii. ; Bigland, plate v. 

Rudder and Atkyns both give incorrectly that the tombs 
are those of one named Ansloe.

bust is the inscription on white marble, surmounted by two 
small urns ; and below this the arms of Romney and Wight. 
The former are, "Azure, on a bend cotised argent, three

for the repairing of this monument, 

15. Sir William Romney founded the Grammar School 
of Tetbury, giving a lease on the toll and profits of the fairs 
which he possessed to the town during its continuance. 
John Wight, M.A., at whose desire the monument was 
erected, and whom it also commemorates, was a most 
generous donor to the rebuilding of the church, to which he 
also bequeathed money under his will. 


Outside the church, lying under the west wall of the 
north porch, are two effigies on low slabs. They were dis- 
covered outside the north wall of the church overgrown with 
grass at a restoration undertaken in 1902. They are both 
exceedingly worn, and it is impossible to tell what they 
represent, or whether they are male or female. The larger 
of the two wears a long robe, and the head rests on a cushion, 
on each side of which there are traces of supporting angels. 
The other is broken below the knees. They are probably 
some of the de Braose effigies which were in the south aisle 
of the old church before it was pulled down in 1777. Rudder 

Monumental Effigies. 


and Atkyns both mention a cross-legged effigy of William 
de Braose in the south aisle, which in the former's time was 
wretchedly defaced and broken to pieces; and of which there 
is now no trace to be found. I am told that it is not an 
uncommon occurrence in Tetbury to find portions of old 
tombstones built into the walls of houses, which may account 
for various effigies mentioned by Atkyns being now lost 


1. (i) Knight in armour. (2) Lady. 

2. Two effigies on a tomb. 

3. Stone. 

4. Life-size. 

5. (i) The effigy is in armour plate — with the exception' 
of the head and hands — and a tunic of chain mail showing 
below the upper one of the plates. The armour on the legs 
and arms is fastened on the outside by small rivets. The feet 
are encased in overlapping plates, and there are spur straps. 
A belt buckling in front has two more buckles at the right 
side, from which the sword hangs. There are small ruffs at 
neck and wrists. The hair is close cropped, and a round 
beard is worn. 

(2) The lady lies on a two-inch slab. She wears a tight- 
fitting bodice with high collar and epaulettes, under which 
are pleated sleeves ending in a ruff at the wrist. Full 
pleated skirt, opening over another corded at the hem. 
Round the waist a girdle tied in front with one bow and twa 
ends. The hair is brushed off the forehead and confined in 
a cap of the style of Mary Stuart, but with a piece folding 
from the back to the front. Both these effigies have the 
hands clasped in the attitude of prayer.

9. There is no inscription ; but Atkyns and Rudder both 
say that the tomb is that of Sir George Huntley and wife ; 
and in the old church the tomb was surmounted by a canopy 
on which were the Huntley arms with quarterings.

The Tolzey Court of Bristol is an ancient institution which 
has escaped the fate of most of the old local courts that 
once formed an important part of our national system of 
administering justice. Tt belongs to the class of borough 
courts which flourished during the Middle Ages. Most of 
these have sunk into almost complete disuse and oblivion^ 
but the Tolzey Court has survived, and its continuance as an 
active tribunal has preserved some interesting old forms and 

In Bristol itself there have existed, besides the Tolzey, 
a number of courts exercising local jurisdictions of various 
kinds, but they have disappeared, with the exception of a 
Court of Pie Poudre, which maintains a nominal existence 
through having become amalgamated with the Tolzey Court. 
From its nature and jurisdiction the Court of Pie Poudre 
would originally be distinct and separate from the Tolzey 
Court, but the two became amalgamated at some period 
more or less remote, and they are now practically one 
institution. They have been so closely connected with each 
other, that in speaking of either it is necessary for the sake 
of completeness to deal with the other also. 

A Court of Pie Poudre, it may be explained, was a temporary 
court set up during the holding of a fair or market for the 
settlement on the spot of any disputes which might arise, and 
such a court was incident to every fair which was held. The 
name is variously spelt, and several different explanations of 
its meaning have been given. A number of opinions on the 
origin and meaning of the name Piepowder by different 
writers are referred to by Professor Henry Morley in his 



Transactions for the Year 1905. 

Memoirs of Bartholomew Fair. He suggests that the name is 
■corrupted from the French for dusty feet," and that the 
Piepowders were the travelling traders, the settlement of 
whose disputes was the primary purpose of a Piepowder 
Court. In support of this he points out that though the 
plural ending of the name was dropped in later times, it was 
formerly known as the Court of Piepowders, and also that in 
the old Scotch borough laws a travelling trader was "called 
pied poudreux, or destitute." This explanation seems more 
likely to be correct than the rather fantastic reason for the 
name of the court sometimes given, that justice was done as 
speedily as dust can fall from the traveller's foot. 

It is not altogether clear with what particular fair the Pie 
Poudre Court which has come down to us was formerly 
.associated. In the days of the great fairs the holding of one 
of these gatherings reduced everything else in the neighbour- 
hood to a state of suspended animation because everyone 
was at the fair, and it appears to have been the practice in 
some boroughs that the ordinary borough court should be 
temporarily discontinued during the holding of a fair in the 
neighbourhood, and that its place should be taken during 
fair-time by a court held at the fair. There is evidence that 
during a period of fourteen days, commencing on the last day 
of September, the Tolzey Court was discontmued, or rather 
it seems to have been transferred with altered functions for 
the time being, to the open street in Old Market. Up to the 
present time writs issued from the Tolzey Court Office during 
this period have the words "held in the Old Market there" 
added to the ordinary title of the Tolzey Court, and the 
proclamation of the opening of the court in Old Market is 
still regularly made. 

The formality of opening the old court of the fair may be 
witnessed m Old Market at ten o'clock in the morning on the 
last day of September in every year. The brief ceremony is 
so quickly over that it is scarcely noticed by most of the 
passers-by. Nevertheless it is of great historic interest. 
It is a link that momentarily recalls the life and daily doings

of bygone mediaeval times. Nowadays the number of quaint 
ceremonies whose performance can be traced back into the 
dim and remote past is becoming smaller and smaller, and 
it is worth attempting to appreciate the significance of those 
that survive. The annual incident in Old Market has lost 
its former elaborateness, but its essentials are preserved. On 
the pavement beneath the overhanging upper storeys of the 
old "Stag and Hounds" there stands at the appointed hour 
the serjeant-at-mace of the Bristol Tolzey Court proclaiming 
the holding of a Court of Pie Poudre.^ The officer makes 
proclamation in the following terms : " All manner of persons 
having anything to do at this Court of the Tolzey for the 
City and County of Bristol held and kept here this day in 
the Old Market, draw near and give your attendance." After 
a moment's interval this is followed by an announcement 
that the court is adjourned, made in these words: "All 
manner of persons who have anything further to do at this 
Court of the Tolzey for the City and County of Bristol, held 
and kept here this day in the Old Market, may now depart 
hence and give their attendance at the Tolzey Court Office 
forthwith. God save the King, the Judge of this Court, and 
his Deputy." Heads are uncovered during the ceremony, 
but the serjeant-at-mace wears no special dress, and after 
performing his annual duty he walks quietly away. There 
is a wealth of meaning and of memory in this fragment of a 
historic ceremony. The tribunal declared open is none other 
than the justice seat before which our forefathers, gathered 
together in one of the periodical fairs wherein all their simple 
trading was done, came to settle the disputes arising out of 
their bargaining. For the origin of fairs and markets we 
must search long previous to the period when population 
began to concentrate in towns and cities. In every temporary 
gathering for the purpose of trade a temporary court to 
settle disputes before the wayfaring traders departed was

drawing specially executed by our member, Mr. Armstrong, who has

Transactions for the Year 1905. 

a necessity, and its antiquity equals that of the fairs and 
markets themselves. Such a court, ''from the earliest times 
of which there is record, has been known in England as the 
Court of Piepowder." It is a court of this description, a 
court similar to those that existed in the earliest periods of 
our island history, and whose lineage may be traced even 
farther back to the market courts of the Normans and the 
Romans, which is annually opened in Bristol on the last day 
of September. 

The surviving observances in connection with the Pie 
Poudre Court, though interesting in themselves, do not 
throw any light on the past history of the court, or assist in 
determining with what particular fair it was associated. Inves- 
tigation of this point introduces the question of the origin of 
the Tolzey Court itself. That origin is traditionally ascribed 
to Saxon times ; but, according to Mr. John Latimer, the 
Tolzey Court "is supposed to have been at first held before 
the royal bailiffs of the Hundred of Barton Regis, of which 
Bristol formed a part when Domesday Book was compiled." 
If the Tolzey Court developed out o^ the Hundred Court of 
Barton Regis, the Old Market may have been the place 
where it was originally held, and its transference to the 
Old Market for a fortnight during every year may have had 
relation to that fact rather than to the holding of a fair in 
Old Market at that season, though during the fortnight 
in question the Tolzey Court certainly appears to have 
exercised the jurisdiction of a Court of Pie Poudre. 

There is no reason to suppose that the court held in 
Old Market was connected with the great St. James's Fair, 
which was indeed held at first in Whitsun week from the 
time of Earl Robert. The time of that fair was altered 
in the eighteenth century from July to September, but its 
date never corresponded with the time of holding the Pie 
Poudre Court in Old Market. It appears from the Chartulary 
of St. Augustine, which is preserved at Berkeley Castle, 
that the fair of Bristol was held about Michaelmas in the 
year 1224. The Mayor's Calendar, written by Robert Ricart 

The Ancient Courts of Bristol. 115 

(town clerk from 1479 to about 1508), mentions that on the 
day after Michaelmas Day it was customary for the new 
mayor and others to go to the Guildhall and take their 
oaths, "And thereupon forthwith one of the bailiffs, by the 
maires commandement, to go to ke^p the markett court." ^ 
On May 24th, 1550, Edward VI. granted a September fair, 
but it does not appear where it was held. The charter 
which the city obtained from Charles II. on June 2nd, 1684, 
contained a grant of eight fairs or markets to be held on 
days and at places which were named, and the charter 
expressly granted Courts of Pie Poudre to be held at the 
time of the several fairs or markets. A later charter, 
granted by Queen Anne on July 24th. 1710, authorised the 
Common Council of the City to change the times and places 
of all or any of the markets held within the city. There 
was no mention of the Old Market in the charter of 
Charles II., and none of the fairs or markets granted by him 
would have any connection with the Old Market, unless 
removed thither under the powers given by Queen Anne. 

The links which might show the bearing of these facts 
on the question of the origin of the Pie Poudre jurisdiction 
exercised in Old Market are lacking, and the point must 
be left in doubt. 

The references in the early charters of Bristol to its 
Hundred Court " support the idea that the place was not 
at first a " borough," and was served by the court of the 
hundred in which it was situated (namely Barton Regis) 
instead of by a borough court. At the end of the reign of 
King John, however, the town had a mayor, and in the time 
of Edward III. two local courts had become well established. 
The charter granted by that monarch in 1373 referred to 
the Mayor's Court and the ''Court of the Tolzey," and 
defined their respective jurisdictions. This is the earliest 
mention of this distinctive name in connection with Bristol. 
Tolzey is an old name for a place where tolls, which played 
a very important part in early trading, were collected. It

Transactions for the Year 1905. 

appears that for many years a contest for jurisdiction was 
carried on between the Mayor's Court and the Tolzey Court. 
We must remember that the right to hold a court was at one 
time a privilege with some profit attached to it, and it was 
to the interest of a court to secure all the business it could. 
During the Middle Ages the courts in the various boroughs 
w^ere commonly under municipal control, and in order that 
the profits to be derived from holding them might not be lost 
towns strove to keep business in their own tribunals by 
passing ordinances imposing severe penalties on any who 
should bring actions elsewhere when they might have 
brought them locally. This policy was pursued in Bristol, 
in common with other places. There were, however, as we 
have seen, different tribunals within the town competing 
against each other for business. In addition to the Mayor's 
Court and the Tolzey Court, there was also a Court of the 
Staple, but both it and the Mayor's Court became quite 
disused, and the Tolzey alone survived. 

In 1461 Edward IV. granted the town to the mayor and 
commonalty for ever, and the Tolzey Court then became 
annexed to the corporate jurisdiction. By the grant of 
Edward IV. to the corporation," wrote Mr. John Latimer, 
"all the profits of the town then belonging to the king 
(except the Castle and its precincts), including the pleas 
of the Tolzey Court — ' the King's Court in the Guild- 
hall,' — were conveyed to the community, and the bailiffs 
were recognised as permanent corporate officials. An 
entry in the Great Red Book (fol. 982) shows that 
the mayor and sheriff immediately took the court on 
themselves, jointly with the bailiffs. The charter of 
Henry VII. [December 17th, 1499] abolished the office of 
a single sheriff, and directed that the bailiffs of the town 
should be chosen, as before, by the corporation, and that on 
their being so chosen they should be ex officio sheriffs. The 
title of bailiff was thus dropped in general parlance ; but as 
the legal style of the Tolzey Court remained unaltered, the 
sheriffs were described as being ' as well bailiffs of the 

The Ancient Courts of Bristol. 117 

mayor and commonalty as sheriffs of the county of BristoL' 
Considerably before this time a legal ofBcer had been 
attached to the court as assessor, who for many generations 
had the title of Steward of the Sheriffs' Court, and practically 
tried all the cases brought before him, but he possessed no 
legal jurisdiction unless a sheriff was on the bench, and all 
the processes, with a trivial exception, were tested in the 
name of the sheriff. This system continued until 1836, when, 
under the provisions of the Municipal Corporations Act, the 
office of steward was absorbed in that of the recorder." 

There is nothing to show the situation of the original 
place for collecting tolls, from which the Tolzey Court is 
supposed to take its name. In mediaeval and later times the 
court appears (when not sitting in Old Market) to have been 
held at the Guildhall, rather than at the place known as the 
Tolzey. Certain items in the earliest corporate audit book 
(1532) show that the Tolzey was a room, but after 1550 a 
walk beneath a penthouse roof fixed against the wall of the 
new council house was the place known as the mayor's or 
civic Tolzey, and a merchant's Tolzey or exchange was built 
soon afterwards. Millerd's map of Bristol (1673) has two 
marginal views of the Tolzey, showing the " south prospect " 
along the wall of the Council House, and the " north 
prospect " in front of All Saints' Church in Corn Street, 
opposite the Council House. Roque's large plan of Bristol 
in 1742 shows "the Tolzey" in Corn Street, while "Pie 
Poudre Court " is marked in the position in Old Market 
where the annual proclamation is made to this day. 

The books in which the early records of the Tolzey 
Court were kept have nearly all disappeared. Among the 
manuscript fragments of an intended "Topographical History 
of Bristol," by the Rev. S, Seyer, preserved in the Bristol 
Public Library, is a note stating that " the Records as far 
back as 1438 a^e in the custody of the Undersheriff, at 
present Arthur Palmer, Esq.^ by whose permission I examined 
two of , the oldest volumes, thus entitled 'The oldest book 
extant of the, Tglz^y— Court Recorcis used up in the time of 


Transactions for the Year 1905. 

Hugome Hungerford, Steward of the Court. Anno Dom. 
1438.' I have given some extracts from these books, from 
which it may be seen that Pleas of debt, of trespass, &c., 
were held before the Steward, and seem to have been 
speedily determined in a manner which must have been very 
advantageous to the litigants." 

It is not known what has become of the majority of 
the volumes to which Mr. Seyer refers, but one book, 
commencing in 1489, has fortunately been preserved, and 
is now in the possession of F. F. Fox, Esq., of Yate House, 
Yate, Gloucestershire. The late Mr. John Latimer pre- 
pared a manuscript index of the names contained in it, 
and also wrote some notes giving a good deal of 
information about the court which is not to be found 
elsewhere. These have already been quoted from, and a 
further extract may be made of Mr. Latimer's remarks as 
to this particular volume: "The records of the court were 
(he wrote) kept in two books, one of them — of which this 
is an example — containing an entry of the causes without 
any indication of the results, whilst the other, called 
the ' Issue Book,' registered the judgments. The present 
volume, which begins on ist of October, fifth of Henry VH. 
(1489), and ends somewhat confusedly in 1497, notifies the 
raising of some 1,500 actions, almost invariably relating to 
debts and trespasses, the amount claimed varying, with rare 
exceptions, from £10 down to 3s. 4d. The entries are of the 
briefest character and monotonously similar. 'A. B. by 
attorney against C. D. for trespass (or debt). Damages 
(say) 100 shillings.' To this the writer generally adds that 
pledges have been given by the plaintiff, but this appears to 
have been a mere form. . . . Besides the formal pledges 
for the plaintiff, the names of bailees for the defendant were 
commonly given, by which means he was protected from 
arrest until after the judgment of the court. In these cases 
the names were undoubtedly authentic. . . . The year of 
the court was the mayoralty year, October being the first 
month and September the twelfth. . . . The court

generally sat thrice weekly — on Monday, Wednesday, and 
Friday — and occasionally on other days, but its proceedings 
were frequently suspended owing to the coming round of 
the feasts of saints and other solemnities of the church, 
including now and then a 'general^ procession,' the nature of 
which is not explained. It will be seen from .the above 
remarks that the register possesses no other interest than is 
to be derived from the names and avocations of the suitors 
and bailees. Judging from the number of cases, and bearing 
in mind the then limited population of the town, litigation 
must have been extraordinarily common amongst all classes." 

Besides this single fifteenth-century volume, the only old 
records of the Tolzey Court known to be preserved are ten 
cause books, which are in the Bristol Public Library, 
covering (with some gaps) the years from 1700 to 1758. Not 
much information is to be gathered from the entries of cases, 
but at the end of the oldest of these books is written what is 
presumably the form of proclamation used at the annual 
opening of the court in Old Market during the early years of 
the eighteenth century. The wording is as follows: — 

"Make proclamation thrice saying Oyes Oyes Oyes. 

" All manner of persons that have anything to do at the 
Court of the Tolzey here holden in the Old Market before 
the as well sheriffs of the City of Bristol as bailiffs to the 
Mayor and commonalty of the same City draw near and 
give your attendance. 

" Make proclamation twice saying Oyes Oyes. 

" Essoigns & proffers Essoigns & proffers Essoigns & 
proffers of suit or plea of any person will be essoigned or 
enter any plaint let them come in and they shall be heard. 

" Make proclamation once saying Oyes. 

"All manner of persons that do owe any suit or service 
to this court answer to your names as your call'd on pain of 
the pain that shall fall on default thereof. 

"Tenants of the Bishop of Worcester come in & do your 
free suit & service. 

" And so of the rest of the suitors." 

I20 Transactions for the Year 1905. 

There are in the original some contractions and pecuH- 
arities of spelling which are not reproduced here. According 
to Jacob's Law Dictionary (1797) " Essoign " is an excuse for 
him that is summoned to appear and answer to an action 
or to perform suit to a court baron, &c., by reason of sickness 
and infirmity or other just cause of absence. "Proffer'^ 
signifies the offer and endeavour to proceed in an action. 

It appears from the entries in these eighteenth-century 
court books that at the period to which they relate the court 
was held in Old Market for fourteen clear days (commencing 
on the last day of September and not counting Sundays) at 
nine o'clock and again at three o'clock;^ but that the calling 
of the suitors at the opening was a farce is clear from an 
illuminating note, written after the names of the suitors^ 
stating that " Each of them made default but they were not 
amerced because they were not summoned." At the end of 
the fourteen days business was transferred to the Guildhall 
for the remainder of the year, but no time of day is 
mentioned except in connection with the Old Market. 
According to Claike's Practice and Pleading in the Tolzey Courts 
published in 1849, pleadings could not be filed in the Tolzey 
Court during the sitting of the Pie Poudre Court in Old 
Market. This rule, however, is not now operative. 

The following account of the ceremony of opening the 
court in Old Market in 1836 appeared in the issue of Felix 
Farley's Bristol Journal, published on October ist in that 
year : — 

" Pie Poudre Court. — According to annual custom, 
this ancient Court was opened yesterday in the Old Market, 
before Sir Charles Wetherell, Knt., to whose jurisdiction 
as Recorder, under the Municipal Corporations Act, all the 
Courts of Record in this City are transferred. This circum- 
stance caused a much larger attendance than usual, and 
many long-resident citizens witnessed for the first time in

their lives the curious ceremony which has for many 
centuries accompanied this annual process. Arthur Palmer,. 
Esq., the venerable and respected Prothonotary, having, 
called upon the representatives of certain Ancients to come 
forth and 'do suit and service,' and none of them obeying, 
the summons, he asked the Recorder if it was his pleasure 
that they should be amerced, but the learned judge did not 
enforce the penalties. Toast and ale, toasted cheese and 
metheglin (no mean beverage when well made) were then 
liberally distributed, not only to the gentlemen at the table,, 
but to the outstanders, and many a hearty laugh was

the outside by the contents of the tempting bowl, instead 
of comforting the inner man with the well-spiced ale. The 
Recorder returned to the Council-house in his carriage ;.

Mr. Latimer refers to the Old Market ceremony in his 
Annals of Bristol, and adds that "the yearly disturbance 
arising from the feast ultimately led to its suppression, and 
the holding of the court was discontmued after 1870." It 
is, however, as we have seen, still proclaimed open, though 
not in fact held. 

The Tolzey Court has power to try every kind of action 
to an unlimited amount, but, like all the courts of its kind, 
its jurisdiction has always been purely local, and exercised 
only within the boundaries of Bristol. Its procedure com- 
prises, however, a special process known as *' foreign 
attachment," by means of which the machinery of the 
court can sometimes be employed against persons who are 
in distant parts. Foreign attachment is a procedure by 
which a seizure is made of foreigner's goods or money found 
within the city for the satisfaction of a citizen to whom the 
foreigner is indebted. An ordinary Tolzey writ can only be 
served on a person within the city, and so the court can 

T22 Transactions for the Year 1905. 

afford no redress against persons outside the boundaries 
except by means of this special procedure of foreign attach- 
ment. The special custom giving a right to proceed by way 
of foreign attachment has prevailed only in London, Exeter 
and Bristol. 

In Bristol the form of the proceedings in foreign 
attachment has preserved the Anglo - Saxon practice of 
compurgation in actual use down to our own time. Before 
the establishment of trial by jury the procedure known as 
compurgation, derived from old Teutonic or Anglo-Saxon 
law, was employed as an alternative to the ordeal or wager 
of battle. A man purged himself from a charge made 
against him by getting others who were his compurgators 
or oath-helpers to swear with him that they believed him 
to be innocent. This method was used in both civil and 
criminal cases, and doubtless served its purpose in primitive 
times, but it gradually became obsolete, and in the Bristol 
Tolzey Court, where it has survived, it is a mere formality. 
In foreign attachment the point at which the Anglo-Saxon 
compurgators come in is after goods have been seized. 
According to the recognised practice, the plaintiff then files 
a declaration, and on a certain court day "the plaintiff's 
attorney proves the debt upon oath, and, according to the 
form of the court, two persons appear as pledges, and swear 
they believe he has spoken truly. He then moves for a 
judgment against such goods and a warrant of appraise- 
ment." The two men who are called pledges are the 
compurgators, and probably a couple of officers of the court 
who might happen to be present would perform the duty. 
I understand that though a few foreign attachments are still 
issued every year, it is now some years since one was carried 
through all its stages, because most are paid off as soon as a 
seizure is made. Probably the period when the procedure 
was really serviceable was in the early days of Bristol trade 
and shipping. A curious case is on record where a ship was 
seized when twenty miles from the town of Bristol. The 
ship was within the territorial limits of jurisdiction, because 


The Ancient Courts of Bristol. 123 

a considerable portion of the Bristol Channel is within the 
boundaries of Bristol. The seizure was therefore quite 
regular, but the captain of the ship committed a gross 
contempt of court by sailing away to Jamaica with the 
legal official on board. On his return he had to answer for 
his contempt. In what way he did so does not appear, but 
the matter seems to have been compromised. 

Apart from its special features, the procedure of the 
Bristol Tolzey Court is practically the same as that of 
the High Court of Justice. Very few of the old local 
courts which exist in various towns have been able to 
secure from^ the central authorities the permission which' 
is necessary to enable them to introduce modern procedure 
in place of that which prevailed a century or more ago, 
and, hampered with cumbrous and old-fashioned procedure, 
they have necessarily become disused ; but modern rules 
of practice have been sanctioned for the Tolzey Court, and 
it is this circumstance which is largely responsible for its 
being still resorted to for recovering money and obtaining 



The importance of registration in English heraldry at an 
early date is manifest to us by the number of Rolls of Arms 
compiled during the reign of Henry III. 

From about 1235 to 1300 no less than sixteen MSS. are 
to be found at the British Museum, describing some hundreds 
of arms^ borne by the principal families of the kingdom 
during this period. 

Perhaps the earliest act for regulating their use is the 
proclamation of Henry V. immediately before the French 
campaign of 1417. It is there stated that no man should 
bear arms without proving by what ancestral right or by 
whose gift he bore them, and claims were to be submitted to 
officers appointed for that purpose: persons who had borne 
coat armour at Agincourt alone being excepted as a particular 
mark of favour. This proclamation was dated 2nd June, 


The dissolution of the monasteries under Henry VIII. 
is usually regarded as the principal reason for that systematic 
regulation of armory and the compiling of descents in 
pedigree form known to us as "The Heralds' Visitations." 
The genealogies of the landed and gentle classes had been 
previously carefully recorded for legal purposes connected 

1 For example: The Glover Roll, circa 1240, with 218 coats; the 
Planche Roll, with 696 coats ; the St. George Roll, with 677 coats ; and the

There are, however, other causes to be considered before 
a definite account can be given, but the above argument is 
doubtless to a great extent true. 

In 1528 the first commission was issued to Thomas 
Benolte, Clarenceux King-of-Arms, to visit the Counties of 
Gloucester, Worcester, Oxford, Wilts, Berks and Stafford. 

To enter into all churches castells howses and other 
places at his discrecon to p'use and take knowledge survey

According to Noble's History of the College of Arms, Benolte 
delayed the Visitation of Gloucestershire until 1533. The 
county was "visited" next in 1560, agam in 1569, and for a 
third time under Elizabeth in 1583. In 1623 the county was 
included in a Visitation made by Camden, Clarenceux, and 
his deputies under a commission of James I. The last visit 
from the heralds was that of 1682-3, when the county was

pedigrees taken by the heralds or their deputies, possibly 
their rough note books or draft pedigrees, from which their 
fair copies " for the College were made. 

In most cases, however, these copies are very rough 
when compared to those in the College. They contain very 
frequently much additional matter, with names added 
subsequent to the period with which they treat ; they are, 
however, not without their interest, and the additional notes 
.are sometimes of considerable importance. 

In the Harleian Library may be found the Visitation of 
^Gloucestershire in 1623, and certain pedigrees from those 
taken in 1569 and 1583. Harl. MS. 1041 includes the whole 
of 1623, and parts of the 1569 and 1583 Visitations. Harl. 
MS. 1543 has the Visitation of 1623 with pedigrees taken 
from both 1569 and 1583, but some pedigrees given in MS. 
1041 do not appear in MS. 1543 and vice versa. 

In the MS. 1041 the two portions relating to the Visitations 
.are entitled : " Arms and Pedigrees from the Visitation of the 
Countie of Gloucester, a.d. 1583, by Robert Cooke, Claren- 
ceulx, as it seems with many Continuations and Additions 
by John Saunders and others," and " The Visitation of the 
Countie of Gloucester as taken a.d. 1623, by Henry Chitty, 
Chester, and John Philpot, Rouge-Dragon, for Will. Camden, 
Clarenx: done by the hand of John Saunders." 

In the MS. 1543 the pedigrees are entitled : " The Visita- 
tion of the County of Gloster made by Robert Cooke alias 
•Clarenceulx King-of-Arms in anno 1583, continued and 
enlarged with the Visitation of the same county, made by

In 1885 the Harleian Society^ published "The Visitation 
of Gloucester taken in the year 1623, with certain pedigrees 
from the Visitations of 1569 and 1582-3." This volume was 
-edited by the late Sir John Maclean, Bart., F.S.A., and 
Mr. W. C. Heane. It contains ^11 the pedigrees found in 
Harl. MSS. 1041 and 1543. 

Among the MSS. in the library of the late Sir Thomas 
Phillipps, Bart., were copies of the Gloucestershire Visitations 
of 1569 and 1682. A portion of the former was privately 
printed (p.p. 1-12) in 1854. 

In 1884 the whole of the latter was issued, also privately 
printed, under the direction of Messrs. Metcalf and Fenwick, 
a portion having been previously printed in 1854-5. 

In Sims's Manual for the Genealogist^ a MS. Visitation, 
without date, is noted as being then in the library of Caius 
•College, Cambridge, MS. 553, Art. 6. This MS. has been 
►overlooked b}^ most writers, but by the kindness of the 
Librarian, J. S. Reid, Esq., I am able to give the following 
particulars. Mr. Reid says : " There is no date mentioned 
in MS. 553, Art. 6, for the Visitation of Gloucestershire. At 
the head of it is a statement that ' Hen. VIII. did grant 
to Thomas West Lord Laware^ the right to hold a market 
every Monday on his manner of Warrewike in the County 
of Gloucester, and two fairs at our Ladydaye Assumtion, at 
this present tyme is maior of the said toune of Warrewike 
Robert Dorney John Ford Constable and Thomas Holder 
Sergeaunt.' The charter is stated to have been confirmed 
by Henry VIII. vicesimo quarto of his reyn."

It is, I believe, the only " copy" of this Visitation outside the 
walls of the College. 


The late lamented prelate was in a very real sense the author 
of the being of our Society, for at the inaugural meeting, held 
now thirty years ago, he proposed the first resolution which called 
us into existence, and afterwards on the departure of the Lord 
Lieutenant he took the chair. On the formation of the Society 
he also accepted the position of patron, but he did not afterwards 
become a member of the Society or take any active interest in 
its work. He was,, however, known to most of us as a cautious 
and hardworking bishop of the united Sees of Gloucester and 
Bristol, while there were few indeed who had not heard of his 
work in connection with the Revised Version of the New Testa- 
ment, and very many English-speaking people throughout the 
world have felt thankful for the help which the version has 
brought to them. . His work as first Secretary of the Lambeth 
Conferences, though it is less widely known, was hardly less 
valuable. Though he could scarcely be called a man of wide 
or varied intellectual interests, he was an excellent Greek gram- 
marian, and was well read in modern theological philosophy ; his 
position as a clear and acute thinker was marked by his member- 
ship of the " Metaphysical Society," a select company of the 
ablest men of the day, who met periodically between 1869 and 
1880 for the discussion of deep questions of life and morals. It 
was unfortunate that the bishop could not find time to take part 
in our work ; he would have been a most helpful member of our 
Society, for his quickness in laying hold on the true point of a 
subject, and his quiet dexterity in framing questions which pierced 
to the root of a matter, would have been invaluable as a training 
in habits of accuracy in thought and clearness of expression. 

Dr. EUicott, who was born in 1819, after holding Divinity 
Professorships at Cambridge and King's College, London, became 
Dean of Exeter in 1861, and was consecrated to the Sees of 
Gloucester and Bristol on Lady Day, 1863. He served the 
double diocese for thirty-four years, and finally, after resigning 
the See of Gloucester at Candlemas, 1905, he died on October 
2oth in that year. 

Wife. London : Longmans, Green & Co. 1904. 

It may be said at once that, except for the period of her husband's 
residence in Merton College, Mrs. Creighton has done her work thoroughly 
well, and has given a portrait which those who knew him will recognise 
as faithful, and will value accordingly. In some respects there was a 
considerable similarity between the early years of the two great historian 
bishops, Stubbs and Creighton; both were born in a small northern town, 
and educated at a cathedral school, and neither had any real scope for 
his ability till he reached Oxford. Creighton was born at Carlisle, and 
•educated first at the cathedral school in that city, and then in the similar 
school at Durham. There can be little doubt that it was at Durham, 
under the spell of the noblest of English cathedrals, that he became 
inspired with the Ftrong spirit of churchmanship which lasted through 
his college life. It does not appear, however, that in these early days 
he showed any marked taste for history, or any signs of special ability 
with regard to the subject; it would seem, indeed, that it was the 
apparently accidental circumstance that there was no history tutor at 
Merton at the time of his election to his Fellowship which turned his 
attention definitely to history. On leavmg Durham and failing to obtain 
a Scholarship at Balliol, he was elected to a Postmastership at Merton, 
and as he was elected to a Fellowship at the same college immediately 
after passing through the schools, Merton was his home during the 
whole ten years of his college life. There can be little doubt that 
Merton, as it then was, had much to do with the formation of the 
character of the future Bishop, and it is a pity that Mrs. Creighton 
has made the same mistake which was made by so many who wrote 
about Lord Randolph Churchill, and has spoken of the college as 
"rowdy." In truth it was a college which in all respects, except 
honours in the classical schools, could well hold its own among its 
larger neighbours. 

Among the Fellows in residence during the first five years of Creighton's 
Fellowship were Mr. Caird, now Master of Balliol, Mr. Rhys, afterwards 
Professor of Celtic and President of Jesus, the Rev. R. L. Wilson, late 
Warden of Keble, Mr. Esson, now Savilian Professor of Geometry, Air. 


Notices of Publications. 


Wallace, afterwards Professor of Moral Philosophy, Mr. Knox, now Bishop 
of Manchester, Mr. W. C. Sidgwick, and Mr. Andrew Lang. A sufficiently 
brilliant company ; even if we take it that Creighton shone velut inter 
ignes Luna minores, there were other lights, and they also shone. Yet 
brilliant as these classical Fellows were, they did not excel as teachers ; 
after 1865, Merton name appeared in the First Class of Litercs 
Htimaniores till 1878. Men who read for other schools fared better. 

There was no lack of ability among the undergraduates. Only sixty 
men were in residence, yet among them were found in 1867 Lord Randolph 
Churchill and the present Governor-General of the Commonwealth of 
Australia, the Metropolitan of Calcutta and th-e Bishop of Carlisle, 
Professor Saintsbury of Edinburgh and the late Mr. Grant Allen. It is 
very unfortunate that the college is more than once spoken of as " rowdy." 
There could be no less appropriate term ; there was a good deal of harmless 
fun which sometimes- became noisy, but nothing more. To connect 
"rowdyism" in 1871 with a bonfire in 1865 is an absurdity; one who 
resided from i865 to 1872 never even heard of this bonfire so far as he can 
remember. An excellent note of the tone of the college was given in the 
Oxford Spectator of May 5th, 1868: "Next, as was said, come the Merton 
men. These are not of one sort ; but some hunt, and some boat, and some 
play cricket, and some read. Others again do none of these things, while 
a few have been known to do more than one, as when a boating man has 
been seen playing cricket, or a reading man has rowed. This people also 
is in some degree magnificent in its dress, and rivals the housemen. Here 
also are lectures for which you pay three guineas." It is likely thkt 
Creighton acquired much of that alert adaptability which distinguished 
him throughout his career from the full measure of liberty and the mani- 
fold activities of Merton life. 

There is one point which must be made quite clear. The sincerity of 
Creighton's religious professions has been doubted, most unjustly in the 
opinion of the present writer. His brilliant tongue-fence was a mask, 
sometimes perhaps unwisely assumed, but he was not insincere. 

In the early days of his Fellowship Creighton had a difficult position 
to fill, and he was not altogether successful as a disciplinarian; men 
resented his tongue, and he was regarded as uncertain. It is certainly 
very unfortunate that the extracts given on page 57 are reproduced ; they 
will revive unpleasant memories, and if the writer of the book had known 
all the facts of the case it is not likely that they would have been put into 

No account of Merton in Creighton's day would be complete without 
a mention of old Warden Bullock-Mar sham. The book does him scant 
justice. He was a perfect model of a courteous old English gentleman, 
who was most regular in his attendance at the chapel services. The 


Trai^sactions for the Year 1905. 

religious influence of iMerton lost nothing by the fact that the Head of 
the College was the only Lay Head in Oxford, and the general tone of 
the college gained very much from the fact that the old Warden was what 
he was. It has been necessary to set out all this at length, because 
Merton was the only Oxford college to which Creighton belonged, and 
it is a matter of importance that the wrong impression which the book 
undoubtedly gives should be corrected. 

In 1875 Creighton became Vicar of Embleton, on the sea-coast of 
Northumberland, and the change of life was probably from all points 
both wise and good. It is likely that he had got from Oxford all that 
it could give him, and that longer residence there would have cramped 
him rather than been any further help. He had time for thought and 
study at Embleton, and yet there were families in the neighbourhood 
intercourse with whom prevented anything like stagnation, while the 
actual experience of parochial life was of inestimable value to him in his 
future work as Bishop. The prelate who passes at once from his study 
to his see is not commonly the most broad-minded or helpful of bishops. 
In some ways the ten years at Embleton were the fallow period of his 
life ; he was too actively brilliant a man to produce much really solid work 
under the stress of Oxford life, and these ten years marked the beginning 
of his productiveness. The call to Cambridge again, as Professor of 
Ecclesiastical History, in 1884 came at the right time. When in that 
year Dr. Stubbs became Bishop of Chester, Creighton would have liked 
to succeed him either at Oxford or St. Paul's, the latter by choice ; but 
neither door was open, and the offer from Cambridge came unexpectedly. 
It was accepted because he felt that he was beginning to lead a double 
life ; by choice he was a student of history, but he was being drawn by 
circumstances which he could not control into the wearisome system of 
ecclesiastical administration. And no one can doubt that the five or six 
years spent at Cambridge and as Canon of Worcester were of more 
value to himself, to the science of history, and to the Church than they 
would have been if he had remained at Embleton. And so it was that 
when, at the age of forty-seven, he was consecrated to the See of 
Peterborough in 1890 he was as fully equipped, so far as varied and 
helpful experience could enable him, as any man could be for the great 
work which lay before him. 

As Bishop he was what he had been at Merton, compelling admiration 
by his extraordinary brilliancy both in deeds and words, trusting much 

the power of words, and yet perhaps not so fully trusted as one 
possessing the same keen and heartfelt a power of sympathy with less 
brilliant intellectual powers might have been trusted. He had difficulties 
in early days both at Merton and in London ; he was perhaps not entirely 
successful in dealing with them in either case, and it is likely that in

■each case the very brilliancy of his gifts stood in his way. Yet this may 
truly be said of him, that no man ever tried more earnestly both to feel 
with those among whom or over whom he was set or more loyally to 
serve them. His sun went down at high noon, and the Church of 
England is feeling his loss to-day ; but, it may be doubted whether 
those qualities which caught the eye and held the attention were quite 
the qualities which would have been most helpful in the high position 
for which he seemed to be so surely destined. 

We have to consider his work as a historian whose most earnest wish 
was that he might be known as one who tried to write true history. 
And probably the first thought which arises on looking over the 
bibliography at the end of the book is that ten years hence all will be 
forgotten except the five volumes of the History of the Papacy ; the 
articles and little books and reviews, useful and interesting and suggestive 
as they are, will pass. That, however, is not quite a fair judgment ; 
even if nothing had been done except the work connected with Epochs of 
History and other similar series it would have been much. It is a great 
thing that young people have within their reach manuals of sound history 
well adapted for their use. Yet he had accomplished practically as 
much as Dr. Stubbs had accomplished at the age of forty-seven ; the 
live volumes on the Papacy may well stand side by side with Councils 
■and Ecclesiastical Documents, Select Charters, and some of the Introductions 
to the Rolls Series. It is certainly strange that as Bishop Creighton's 
work stops just at the threshold of the English Reformation, so Bishop 
Stubbs was disappointed in his hope of writing the history of England in 
relation to the Church during the Tudor period, and the English 
Reformation is still the most misrepresented and the least understood 
period of our national history. 

But the book is very much more than the story of the work of an histo- 
rian or a bishop, it shows us the man as he was in a very real and living 
fashion. Archbishop Temple's estimate of him, " For sheer cleverness 
Creighton beats any man I know," was quite a true one, and his cleverness 
was at once his strength and his weakness — his strength, because it 
enabled him in a moment, as if by intuition, to see a thing in its true 
nature and proportion ; his weakness, because it prevented him from 
realising that other people could not reach the same position at a bound. 
It is clear from his manner of dealing with the ritualistic controversies in 
London that he did not even to the end of his life understand the British 
Philistine. We see him, however, as he was, a kind and firm parent, a 
strong and steadfast friend, a wise and sympathising ruler, one who did 
with his might whatever his hand found to do. There is an excellent

Prior. London : Seeley and Co. 1905. 

A cathedral church, for the purposes of this book, is one which was 
either designed to be a cathedral, or which has come to have a bishop's 
chair. But the line waves. We are told that, except in the crypt of 
Ripon and the excavated foundations at York and Peterborough, we 
have no stone in situ that can be accepted as definitely laid before the 
Conquest. Yet the crypt of Hexham formed part of a cathedral 
church for twice as long a period as that during which a bishop has 
had his seat in the sister church at Ripon. It might have been better 
also frankly to accept Beverley Minster — perhaps taken altogether the 
most beautiful of English churches — on the ground that it was a 
collegiate church of the Archbishop of York, as Westminster Abbey 
is included because it was for a few years the seat of a bishop. 

Mr. Prior places the summit of Gothic art between 1250 and lago. 
Before this he places three periods — 1066-1150, 1160-1207, 1207-1250 — 
with three other periods before the dissolution of the monasteries 
— 1290-1350, 1350-1410, 1410-1538. He considers that the time of the 
Interdict in the reign of King John, and the visitations of the Black 
Death in the fourteenth century, mark very definite points in the 
development of English architecture. Finally, there is a chapter on 
the English cathedrals in the three centuries following the Reformation, 
and one on the cathedral builders of the nineteenth century. 

The style of architecture in use for the first century after the Conquest 
Mr. Prior calls indifferently Norman, Benedictine or Romanesque — 
Norman in its origin, because though on a small scale it had long 
been used in England, the might and majesty which marked the 
English minsters raised at that time flowed directly from the Conquest 
by William the Norman ; Benedictine, because nearly all these great 
churches formed part of Benedictine houses, and as they set the 
model on which the larger English churches were for a long time 
constructed, the name marks a very real fact in the development of 
the form of English church-building; Romanesque, as marking the 
distinguishing character of its outward form. We still have at 
Gloucester the pillars between which St. Anselm was borne when 
he was elected archbishop, and the choirs and naves of Durham, 
Norwich and Peterborough were already standing in the days of the 
sons of the Conqueror. These great churches have no doubt been 
preserved to us by a fact peculiar to England, that bishop's thrones 
were placed in monastic churches ; or as it would be historically more 
correctly stated, that the old secular canons in some cathedral churches 
had been replaced by regulars. All the great secular cathedrals are

some generations later than these Norman minsters of the monks. 
And it was natural that this should be so ; the conventual body 
would be more conservative than a body of secular canons ; they 
might add ornament to their churches, as the Gloucester monks let 
down the lacework of tracery over the ^Norman pillars and walls of 
their choir, but they would be less likely to destroy. There was no 
opposition between the cathedral and the monastery, as there was in 
so many continental cities, or as there was to some extent between the 
archbishop's church at Canterbury and the monastery of St. Peter and 
St. Paul. Of the great Norman minster we may truly say sedet 
cBternumqiie sedehit, and on its model the great secular minsters also were 

The reformed Orders protested against what they considered to be 
the looseness and pride of the Benedictines, not only by their rules of 
life, but also by the outward form of their architecture. Mr. Prior 
expresses a regret that no one of the great Cistercian Minsters of Our 
Lady, simple in plan and severe in construction — simplex munditiis — 
became a cathedral under Henry VIII. And it is certainly a loss that 
this most beautiful phase of English architecture can only be seen in 
ruin. We can only pass by Kirkstall, lying on the very edge of Leeds, 
and think of what might have been. An interesting passage traces the 
character of much of the Cistercian work in the abbeys of South Wales, 
Abbey Dore, Margam, Neath, and Strata Florida to the Benedictine 
Chapter House at Worcester, an influence which extended also to the 
cathedrals of Hereford, Llandaff, and St. David's. Mr. Prior considers 
also that Bristol was, towards the close of the twelfth century, the seat 
of a school of masons whose work is found not only at Wells and 
Glastonbury and in South Wales, but also in the twin cathedrals at 

The half century following the Interdict under King John witnessed the 
growth of some of our most beautiful churches, of which the cathedrals, 
of Lincoln and Salisbury are types ; the latter being as simple and neat 
as anything in the earlier Cistercian churches, but being in beauty com- 
pared with them what the flower is to the bud. When Bishop Poore, who 
had planned the church at Salisbury, went to Durham, he added in the 
nine altars no unworthy substitute even for the mighty apses which had 
looked down upon the Wear. Work of this period is scarce in our 
district, the best example perhaps is the noble base of the tower of 
St. Mary Redcliff, cathedral-like in its proportions, though it was 
planned only by the inhabitants of a single parish in the little borough 
of Redcliff. The last half of the thirteenth century marked the summit 
of Gothic art in England, in the choir and transepts at Westminster, the. 
angel choir at Lincoln, the choir at St. Albans, and the lost twelve-bayed 


Transactions for the Year 1905. 

choir of old St, Paul's. The most beautiful of our chapter houses, those 
at Westminster, Salisbury, Southwell, Wells, and York, date from this 
period, and of these the last named claimed the proud pre-eminence— 
■Ut Rosa flos flovum sic est Domus ista Domorum. 

With the fourteenth century there came a new tone in the building 
of our greater minsters. It was no longer marked by pure devotion and 
simple beauty, but rather by overflowing luxury and superabundant 
ornament. Exeter Cathedral and the south aisle of the nave at 
Gloucester are examples of the more florid style of the period, while 
the choir of Bristol Cathedral is a good instance of more restrained 
work. One wonders what Abbot Knowle would have made of it, if 
Edward II. had been buried within it, and the wealth of offerings had 
flowed to Bristol instead of Gloucester. There are few more beautiful, 
windows in England than the east window at Bristol (alas that we can 
no longer see it !), and the means by which the thrust of the nave roof 
is carried over the aisles is a work of constructive genius. It is 
suggested that the inverted arches under the tower at Wells are the 
work of the Bristol masons, and their style is certainly very similar, as 
their date is the same. 

The Black Death caused an almost complete stoppage of building, 
though in London and at Gloucester work seems to have been continuous, 
and Mr. Prior regards St. Peter's at Gloucester as the parent of the 
Perpendicular style, with its tall windows, in the South of England. 
But church building was no longer a living and growing art, there was 
a lack of spontaneity, patterns became standardised, and the same 
models were used over and over again. As Mr. Freeman said of 
Somerset: "The Perpendicular style was introduced into Somerset very 
early, and it remained in use for a long time without any material 
change." ^ Take the interior of the noblest of Somerset parish churches, 
St. Mary Redcliff : the proportions of the whole are beautiful, but the 
details of each portion are poor and bald and fiat — 

" Perfectly beautiful, let it be granted her : where is the fault ? 

Faultily faultless, icily regular, splendidly null, 
Dead perfection, no more." 

But the men of the fifteenth century knew how to build churches 
which would endure. Their towers still stand four-square to all the 
winds that blow ; the stones may crumble, but the vaulting lasts, and 
will last. It is to the century and a half before the dissolution of the 
monasteries that we owe the noblest of our parish churches. The 
fifteenth century was a time when a day's wages would purchase more 
of the necessaries of life than at any period before or since, and this

abundance of means was lavished unstintingly not only on the fabrics of 
the churches, but on their adornment. It is difficult for us to realise the 
beauty and wealth of adornment of the churches of England in the reign 
of Henry VII. Then came the Reformation, which not only stopped 
•church building, but dealt a severe blow at religious art, and indeed art of 
all kinds. But two branches of religious art, monumental and carved 
woodwork, have always been alive in England. No doubt it was needful 
to move many of the monuments which were obstructive, or were 
placed at first in unsuitable positions. But it is difficult to think without 
indignation of the wanton destruction of so much beautiful woodwork. 
The panelling of the old high pews would have made admirable seats, 
much better than the new oak and shining pitch-pine which replaced them. 
Many a noble organ gallery, which was in nobody's way, has been quite 
needlessly destroyed, Over and over again some so-called " restoration 
has presented a contrast between the present and the past as sharp as in 
the days of the Psalmist : — " He that hewed timber afore out of the 
thick trees was known to bring it to an excellent work But now they 
break down all the carved work thereof with axes and hammers." Even 
yet the destruction of the plaster roofs — characteristic of the marsh-land 
of Somerset — is going on, and tasteless match boarding, most likely brought 
from abroad, is substituted. On the other hand, one of the most beautiful 
churches in Somerset was " restored " by a vicar who knew what to leave 
alone, with only the help of a decorator from Bristol, and the parishioners 
are glad thereof. 

Mr. Prior has written -a very helpful book. Those who know their 
cathedrals will find very much to interest them in the comparison and 
contrast between church and church, and in tracing out the gradual 
development of the growth of our great minsters; while those who as 
yet know little of these beautiful churches may learn very much which 
may lead them to pass from the study of the book to that of the buildings. 
The book, which contains about one hundred pages, is illustrated by some 
^thirty pictures, taken as far as possible from pictures and prints made 
before the churches came under the hand of the restorer, and of course 
all the more helpful on that account. There is a satisfactory index. 

London : Henry Frowde. 1905. 

Mr. Duignan had written a book on Stafordshire Place-Names, and he tells 
us that he was then attracted to Worcestershire by the very large number 
of Anglo-Saxon Charters preserved in the archives of the bishops of 
Worcester and the great monasteries of the county. And certainly the

shire is well favoured in this respect. First would come the great 
Confirmation Charter of Pershore Abbey, a.d. 972, which may certainly 
be accepted as genuine, not only on account of its internal evidence, but 
also because the estates were split up so soon after King Edgar's death, 
and were never re-united Then come the Worcester documents, 
Nero, E. i., placed by Kemble about a.d. iooo, which was compiled 
probably under the care of St. Oswald, Bishop of Worcester, a.d. 961- 
992, and Tiberius, A. xiii., a chartulary compiled by the monk Heming in 
the time of St. Wulfstan, bishop, a.d. 1062-95. After these come the 
far inferior documents of Evasham, Vespasian, B. xxiv., about the close of 
the twelfth century, and Harleian MS. 3763, written perhaps in the 
fourteenth century, with some other late authorities, such as the Subsidy 
Rolls and so forth. But it cannot be said that Mr. Duignan has made 
the most of his authorities. He has indeed most industriously collected 
the references to the occurrence of the place-names under the heading 
of each name, but he gives no hint of the date of the document 
in which the occurrence is found. All his authorities, early and late, 
therefore are treated as possessing equal authority, and the result is 
misleading. For example, the earliest authorities for the use of the term 
Huiccii are stated thus: — "In 693 Oshere is called 'rex Huicciorum,' 
C.5. 85.''- In 706 iEthelweard subscribes himself ' sub-regulus,' son of 
Oshere, ' quondam regis Wicciorum,' C.S. 116. In 714 we find ' episcopus 
Wicciorum,' C.S. 130. In 757 Eanberht subscribes himself ' regulus 
propriae gentis Hwicciorum,' and his brothers Uhtred and Aldred are 
confirming parties." Of these documents C.S. 85 is from Harleian MS. 
4660, a collection of copies of Worcester charters made by George 
Hickes about a.d. 1700; C.S. 116 is from Vespasian, B. xxiv., about the 
close of the twelfth century ; C.S. 130 is from Harleian MS. 358, a modern 
collection on paper, perhaps of the sixteenth century; C.S. 183 is found 
both in Nero, E. i., of the end of the tenth century, and in Tiberius, A. xiii., 
Heming's Chartulary, a century later. It is to be noted, however, that in 
both the last mentioned documents Kemble and Birch read Huiccioruni, not 
Hwicciorum. Evidently not much weight can be given to C.S. 130 with 
regard to a place-name in a.d. 714, or to C.S. 116 with regard to a.d. 706. 
It would have been a great help if references to the Pershore Charter and 
the Worcester Charters had been distinguished by the use of special type. 

The book consists of a short introduction, and then of a list of place- 
names in Worcestershire extending over 185 pages, and including probably 
about eleven hundred entries. First the name is given, then the ancient 
forms, then the supposed meaning, and finally any remarks on the word 
which may be considered helpful. It may be said at once that the work 
is very carefully done, with a refreshing absence of wild guessas. 
1 C.S. is a reference to Cartidarium Saxoiiicum, by Mr. W. Birch. 


Notices of Publications. 141 

Professor Skeat, of Cambridge, and Mr. W. H. Stevenson, Fellow of 
St. John's College, Oxford, have kindly rendered great assistance. As is 
natural, the book errs to some extent, at any rate in excess. AtisUn, 
C.S. 75, and Austan, C.S. 269, are referred to a mythical Austen on the 
Severn near Worcester : they refer, of C9.urse, really to Aust Cliff, and 
the Hanbury mentioned in the earlier document is Henbury, in which 
parish Aust lies. Herein, however, Mr. Duignan has followed Kemble 
and Mr. Birch : he rightly remarks that Austen is not an Anglo-Saxon 
word ; no doubt if he had recognised the true locality he would have 
recognised Augustinus as the derivation. It is curious that there really is 
an Aust Cliff in Wolverly, north of Kidderminster, but the forms show 
clearly that this is really Alstanesclive , Ealhstan's Cliff. Austan, C.S. 269, 
is quoted also as referring to Aston Fields, south of Bromsgrove ; this is, 
of course, an error. Under Escelie there comes a curious piece of 
Domesday history, Wulfwine held it T.R.E., and had bought it from 
the Bishop of Chester for three lives. When he was dying he called to 
him Bishop Li, his wife and several friends, and assigned the property 
to his wife for her life, with reversion to the Church. Lyfing was 
Bishop of Worcester 1038-46. This entry shows that the Domesday 
tenure T.R.E. need not mean 1066, for Wulfwine must have died at least 
twenty years before that time. The only meaning given for Batch is the 
valley of a stream; this will not do in all cases, for tte highest point of 
Mendip is Beacon Batch. Halliwell also gives the meaning of a mound, 
and this must certainly be admitted. Ball Mill, on a stream mentioned in 
good Worcester documents as Baele, is a puzzle ; a Ball's Yea exists in 
Ban well, but no derivation can be assigned to the term. It is not the case 
that there are only three Cadburys; at least two more not mentioned 
exist in Somerset, near Clevedon and Yatton. It is difficult to accept 
the weald of Cod," Cod being taken as a personal name, as the deri- 
vation of " Cotswold," Far more likely is the suggestion of Canon 
Isaac Taylor that it is " a hybrid name from the Celtic coed, ' wood ' or 
' forest,' and the Anglo-Saxon weald, M.E. wold, which was used in the 
sense of waste or unenclosed ground." This is borne out by the names 
Codmoor Lane and Codinore Copse, which occur near Barnsley, and which 
may well represent the last lingering survival of Coed Mawr, "the great 
wood." The writer has reckoned without his host when he says that 
there is no word in Old or Middle English except Fepston, in Himbleton, 
commencing with Fep-. Bede^ records that Diuma, Bishop of the 
Middle Angles, died in regione qua vocatur Infeppingum. Furthermore, in 
the list of Tribal Hidage the Fcerpinga appear, with a note that they are 
among the Middle Angles, as holding three hundred hides. It is quite 
possible that Fepston may have been among their settlements, and if

this were so the name may have a value in fixing the locality of this 
ancient people. 

With regard to the termination tng Mr. Duignan mentions only two 
meanings, a patronymic and a possessive sense, with an expression of 
doubt concerning the latter. It had, however, certainly the meaning of 
"the inhabitants of a place"; as for example, C.S. 784, a.d. 943, 
ealdingctuninga tnearce, niwantuninga mearce, " the boundaries of the people 
of the old town and of the new town; C.S. 863, a.d. 948, to brytfordingea 
land sceare, "to the territory of the Britford folk" ; this is supported by an 
original document. But the chief authority for this meaning is an original 
document of a.d. 969, C.S. 1229, which mentions in the land boundaries 
two points at which three boundaries meet, wohurninga 6- wafanduninga 
cepsleaingea, and crancfeldinga 6- mercstuninga &> holacotan, " of the Woburn, 
Wavendon, and Apsley Guise folk," and "of the Cranfield and Marston 
Mortayne folk, and of Holcot." There can be little doubt that Nafford is 
simply cetforda with n prefixed, like Napleton, Noke, and Noverton. The 
derivation given for Pershore, "peach-tree bank," from Persoc "peach," 
and ora "a bank," is interesting as showing that " Pershore plums" were 
well known at least nine centuries ago. The ancient estate of Sture in 
Usmere is identified with Stourbridge, but it is likely that Kidderminster 
would more truly represent it. Under the heading Hiviccii reference is 
made to the entry in the Chronicles a.d. 800, rad Mthehmmd aldorman of 
Hwicciiim ofer cet Cynemceres forda, "Alderman ^thelmund rode over from 
the Hwiccians at Kempsford " into Wessex. The meaning is not that he 
was ruler over the Hwiccians, though that was the case, but that he 
crossed over from {of, from) the Hwiccians into Wessex. 

It is a pity that the author did not sum up the fruits of his investigations 
in a series of chapters on the different classes of place-names in Worcester- 
shire, such as Celtic and prehistoric names, Saxon names, ecclesiastical 
names, and the few names which seem to have arisen since the date of 
Domesday. As it stands, the book has an unfinished aspect ; it is rather a 
collection of materials for a treatise on Worcestershire place-names than 
a completed work. But even so it is a very useful book to those who have 
time and inclination to do their own thinking, and it is especially helpful 
to the student of Gloucestershire place-names, because for more than 
four centuries after the battle of Dyrham the two shires lay both for civil 
and ecclesiastical purposes in the same district. 

ORDO ROMANUS PRIMUS, with Introduction and Notes by E. G. 
CuTHBERT Atchley. Loudon : Alexander Moring. 1905. 

This book, which may possess an interest for us because it is compiled by 
a contributor to our Transaction, consists essentially of the document 

Notices of Publications. 


from which it takes its name, which probably dates from the time of 
Pope Stephen III., 768 — 772. This first Ordo is followed by a translation 
of another Ordo known as that of Si. A?nand, which seems to be an account 
of the Roman Mass drawn up for the use of a church in Gaul about the 
year 800. The documents, therefore, give a good representation of that 
Roman Order which Canon 13 of the Council of Clovesho directed should be 
observed in the English Church in 747, and to which Alcuin directed the 
attention of Eanbald, Archbishop of York, in 796.1 These references of 
Alcuin are among the earliest instances in which the Roman Ordo is 

The service described is that of Solemn Mass on Easter Day in the 
Basilica of St. Mary Major, at which all classes of the clergy and the 
people of Rome attended by representation. Mr. Atchley has provided 
a translation of the Latin Ordo which represents its sense very well, though 
successfully on p. 117 is a manifest slip for successively ; while "at the bend 
of the Porch of St. Paul, only those on foot attend," on p. 121, seems 
inadequate for iyi reflexione porticus sancti Pauli. Is it possible that reflexio 
referred to the stream of the Tiber ? ^ The chief entrance to the Basilica is 
from the riverside. The book opens with an introduction extending over 
some fifty pages, which consists of a series of short articles on the Basilica 
itself, its ministers, and the ornaments of service ; and as the church was 
already in existence long before the time of Pope Stephen, it is possible to 
follow the description closely. The second part consists of an account of 
Solemn Mass and its ritual, and here again as the words of the service were 
what they are now it is easy to realise the outward form of the service. It 
is certainly a striking thing that if the Pope were to celebrate Solemn Mass 
at St. Mary Major now, both the surroundings of the service and the words 
would be those described in this Ordo twelve centuries ago, though the 
outward forms and ceremonies would be widely different. An Appendix 
gives the Roman Liturgy of the eighth century with Rubrical directions 
from the Gregorian Sacramentary , and the two Ordines contained in the 
book, and there is added for purposes of comparison an account of the 
African Liturgy in the time of St. Augustine. 

It is unfortunate that in his account of the service Mr. Atchley has 
made use of the points of the compass. The Basilica of St. Mary lies 
north-west and south-east, with the altar towards the north-western end, 
and the Pontiff during the Celebration faced south-east and towards the 
people. Such a sentence then as the following is very confusing : " When 
the last Kyrie eleisun has been sung, the Pope turns round towards the 
people and intones the Gloria in excelsis, turning back again to the east 
while the choir continue and finish it."^ As a fact, he would have been

facing south-east when he was looking towards the people, north-west when 
he was turned from them. With regard to the service itself, all the ranks of 
the clergy were vested alike, except that the Pope wore his pall fastened on to 
his planeta or outer vestment, and the deacons took off their planeta when 
they reached the presbytery that their arms might be free for their service. 
The bread and wine for Communion were gathered from the people during 
the service, the Pope and his attendants collecting the loaves, and the 
archdeacon receiving the flasks of wine ; wine was also received from the 
clergy and water from the choir, which were poured together into a large 
chalice, and the loaf-offerirgs of the clergy were then received. . On the 
great Festivals of Christmas, Easter, Pentecost and St. Peter's Day the 
Cardinal Priests gathered to the right and left of the altar, and repeated 
the Canon together with the Pope, in order that his voice might be heard 
more distinctly ; they held their loaves in their hands, and thus together 
with him they hallowed the body and blood of the Lord. A sufficient 
number of the loaves was consecrated, and after being broken up, the 
fragments were placed in sacks for distribution ; but only a single chalice 
of wine was consecrated, from which the clergy received, the wine for the 
use ot the lay-people being indirectly consecrated by pouring into it some 
of the consecrated wine from the single chalice. The lay-people received 
the wine through a pipe or reed. There was a curious custom that after 
the recital of the Canon the Pope returned to his throne and signified to 
his notaries the names of those whom he invited to breakfast after the 
service, which invitations were immediately delivered. One is reminded 
of the dinners formerly given during their period of close residence by the 
Canons of Durham, for which invitations were given after Evensong. It 
certainly seems difficult to understand how with such frequent transferences 
of the hallowed bread from one person to another, and such frequent 
pourings of the wine, spilling or the fall of fragments to the floor could be 
avoided ; the belief iii the sacredness of the hallowed elements was, how- 
ever, very clear. These services were, as we may well imagine, very long, 
and Pope Gregory in his later years complained that he was so much 
troubled with gout that he was unable without great difficulty to celebrate 
the Solemn Mass on Festivals which lasted three hours. The book may 
not appeal to a very large number of readers, but it is a very useful work of 
its kind, for the sections on the ornaments of the Church and its ministers 
and on Solemn Mass and its ritual are very carefully cpmpiled and contain 
much information that is very helpful. The book has also a real interest 
in another way, as showing how very widely outward ceremonies and 
ritual have altered even in the same service and in the same church. It is 
likely that the outward ceremonies of a reverent Easter Celebration in the 
Church of England would not vary more from the ritual of the Ordo than 
a Solemn High Mass by the Pope in the Basilica of St. Mary (if such a 


Notices of Publications. 


service could take place) would diffei from the ceremonies used in that very 
church eleven centuries ago. Unity does not lie in outward forms. There 
is an excellent Index and some very instructive illustrations. The picture 
of the Basilica of St. Mary is useful as showing the entablature before it 
was cut by the arch on either side ; and a series of pictures illustrative of 
sacred vestments shows clearly that the vestments used in the service of 
the Church are simply the costumes worn by civilians of the higher ranks 
of the Roman Empire in the fifth and sixth centuries. Three pictures of 
ambones which have appeared in our Transactions appear also here by the 
kindness of our President of Council, and it is gratifying to find that they 
take a worthy place in really good company. 

HORFIELD MISCELLANEA. By Rev. Fanshawe Bingham, M.A. 
Portsmouth : W. H: Barrell. igo6. 

This book, as its name implies, is a collection of notes made about many 
things at many times, the origin of all being a note-book formerly belonging 
to the Rev. Samuel Seyer, the historian of Bristol, who was Curate of 
Horfield from 1813 till 1828. With regard to archaeological matters, the 
name first appears in Domesday as Horefelle, rated at eight hides, a rating 
which includes at least the additional area of Filton. Unfortunately the 
" Langley Hundred" on the page of the great Record, which refers only to 
Alveston, is taken to refer also to Berkeley, which was of course a Hundred 
of itself, and it is erroneously stated that Horfield lay in Langley Hundred, 
the true Hundred being that of Berkeley. With regard to the meaning of 
the name, it is derived no doubt from the same root with Horton and 
Horwood, the forest which lay between the Berkeley Kingswood on the 
north and the Bristol Kingswood on the south, with its hunting seat at 
Alveston, The names of old woods are often as difficult to interpret as 
those of hills or streams, but Mr. Duignan gives " dirty or muddy town " 
as the meaning of a Worcestershire Horton as derived from the old English 
Horn "mud," and as both Horton and Horfield stand on the lias clay it is 
not needful to seek any other origin for the name. Mr. Seyer marked, and 
Mr. Bingham records, the existence of a tumulus which has escaped the 
watchful eyes of Mr. Witts ; it has been opened more than once, and 
spoiled. The church was originally a chapel of Almondsbury, and it 
does not seem to have been in any way an independent cure till Mr. 
Richards became Perpetual Curate in 1828. The register books begin at 
an unusually early date — 1543 — for baptisms, marriages and burials; and 
an incident recorded by Mr. Bingham shows the absolute necessity of 
never allowing a stranger to be left alone with the registers. The notes 
on the parish are carried down to 1900, and of course there is very much

that does not fall within the view of an archaeological society. Mr. 
Bingham has done a really good work in putting his notes into an accessible 
form, and though what is said about the history of the parish before the 
date of Domesday must be taken with a good deal of caution, the book 
shows how very much of interest there is in the history of any parish, and 
careful work of this kind will always be welcomed, not only by the parish- 
ioners who are more particularly interested, but also by many others who 
are interested in local topography and history, and who can generally find 
something helpful to them in any local history. The shape of the book 
and its limp covers are not very convenient. 

THE Department OF British AND Medieval Antiquities. Printed 
by order of the Trustees of the British Museum. 1902. 

This little book of some 120 pages, with its companion volumes on the 
"Bronze Age" and the "Early Iron Age," is published by the Trustees 
of the British Museum, at the cost of one shilling each, or threepence 
more for each volume if sent by post. Each book is furnished with some 
ten plates and about 140 illustrations. Although the specimens described 
are only the ones in the Museum collection, yet the range of this collection 
is so wide, that practically the descriptions form an excellent introduction 
to the subjects of which they treat. Many of us are prevented by distance 
from museums from studying these ancient implements themselves, and 
the abundance of excellent illustrations is most helpful in enabling folk so 
circumstanced to form a good idea of what they are really like ; while it 
by no means follows that in every museum the specimens are either 
rightly described or arranged in the most helpful order. Many more there 
are who are prevented from studying the classical works on the subject, 
and they will find in these little books information about the implements 
themselves, and the conditions of life of the people by whom they were 
formed and used, which will enable them to use intelligently information 
obtained from more advanced sources. It should be added that the books 
not only describe ancient implements, but also implements of the present 
day of types similar to those which were used in old times. The 
authorities of the Museum have done well in putting into circulation these 
excellent and most helpful publications. 


Compiled for the Bristol and Gloiicestevshive Avchceological Society » 

I HAVE had two reasons for this work, one that the index 
in Bigland is very <:onfused, and does not include the 
parishes from Newent to Yate ; the other, that I have found 
when churches are restored, the shields are generally so 
scrubbed that the paint is rubbed off, and as the bulk of 
them are unfortunately painted on a smopth surface which 
causes them sometimes when repainted to bear but a scant 
resemblance to the original. And here I would note that 
it would be a grand thing for heraldry if modern sculptors 
were obliged, shall I say through the efforts of the Society, 
to hatch in the lines, &c., for the tinctures, since this does 
not prevent their being painted afterwards, as so many get 
faded and grimed with dirt as to quite change the blazon. 
It was the custom formerly to hang the hatchments in the 
churches, and although this has happily been done away 
with nowadays, and they are generally consigned to the 
lumber room, yet when they were true blazons and not 
covered with undertakers' mottoes, they made interesting 
additions to heraldry ; many examples occur in Bigland 
which modern archaeologists can now no longer see. So 
many incumbents take a deep interest in their churches, 
and like to know the meaning of the historic lore handed 
down by these shields, therefore these readings of Bigland 
taken more than a century ago, when properly verified, 
ought to prove a safe guide to them and the restorer. 

I am sorry to have to bring so many Queries before

my readers ; but I think I have hazarded enough in all the 
bracketed interpretations of the arms, and propose, if the 
Editor will allow space, to leave a blank line or two between 
each query, so that any persons may enter a MS. blazon 
when they have discovered the true one, which notes might 
"be added, if kindly sent to me, in further issues of the 

I have been sadly handicapped in all the heraldry con- 
tained in the parishes from Newent to Yate, as I made 
a MS. copy from a friend's edition containing these, from 
which this index has been worked out, and have only been 
able to procure for reference Bigland proper, having to 
trust to other works for verification. 

If readers will refer to the Index of Places, they will 
be able to find the names, blazons, or queries which help 
to make up the different parts of the shields ; it would have 
taken up too much space and needless repetition if every 
shield had been thoroughly described under each name. 
Almost all the dates are obituary ones taken from the 
monuments or other authentic references. It would be 
well if all the modern heraldry since Bigland's time could 
be collected and summarized in the same way, to be joined 
as an appendix to this work.

two heads, which would really be the arms of Ernley.

it is intended for what de Lasseberge bore, as his heir

was changed after the death of Sir John Ramsay, Viscount 
Haddington, eight years afterwards, to Sir Thomas Hamilton, 
created Earl Haddington. John Hamilton of the monument 
was son of this Charles, and as Rachel his mother was 
an heiress, her quartering ought to have been marshalled.] 
Didmavton. 2 and 3, quartering of Forrester: " Az. 9 

mullets or," [I cannot find such a coat, and as Forrester 

is Scotch, I think it is intended for the true Baillee : "Az. 
nine estoiles,, or."] 

BAINTON. Sherborne. '* Sa. 5 lozenges in bend arg.," 

1648. [Rudder, p. 651, makes the lozenges 
gules, which is false. Elizabeth, d. of Sir

a ducal coronet or (gules), three cinquefoils of the last, i.e. 
gules." [In Burke's Extinct Baronetage, pp. 32-3, the shield is 
engraved without its fess or charges, but the blazon is given 
with the coronets or and the cinquefoils gules. Mary, coh.

these two. The first I can only conjecture to be a misreading 
of Baker, and the second is so disconnected from it that it 
looks like a separate shield ; but I take it to be a canton on 
the ? Baker, when it would be " Arg! a chev. betw. 3 crows 
sa., each bearing in the beak an ermine spot " (Lloyd). The 
Rev. Thomas Baker, vicar of Bibury, married Mary Lloyd, 
and his son was surnamed Lloyd Baker.]

quartering of Tracy, 1758: " Arg. on a 
bend sa. betw. 3 pellets, 3 roses of the

not "bend." Glos. Vis., 1623, p. 165, says "Henry Tracy, 
of Tuddington, married Allice, d. and coheire of Thomas 
Baldington."] (2) 2 and 3, quartering of Tracy, impaling 
Packington, 1751 : " Arg. on a chev. betw. 3 mullets,

heads. I believe the first to be right in the number, but 
it generally appears with a chief argent on which the heads 
would be either gules or proper.] 

[BARES.] Tewkesbury. "... a bend 3 dolphins," 

[Flatstone says Martha Tristram. An 
adjoining stone is to the family of Bares. 

I read the coat as "On a bend." The latter bore: "Arg. 

on a bend sa. 3 dolphins naiant or," so it is most probably 

Martha's maiden name.]

Matthew, 1631 ; and Thomas, 1658. According to Glos, 
Vis., 1623, p. 212, these are likely to be brothers, and in 
the note a Matthew married, in 1681, a Mary Gceeninge^ 
and another was buried 1684, at Awre ; but the James was 
father of a Matthew who erected fhe monument, and there 
are no marriages mentioned on either of them. The father of 
James in the Vis. is Thomas, and the grandfather a Mathew. 
It is probable then that James was the father, not brother, 
of the 163 1 Matthew, so his marriage must remain a 
Query.] Thomas, 1658, with the same arms, impales 

"... a saltire ..." [_Glos. Vis., 1682, p. 107, says 

Elizabeth Langley was the wife of Thomas B., of Winter-

there is ? printer's error of "pellets" for "pallets." The

[? DOYNGELL.] Dyrham. Second quartering of Brain im- 
paled with Wynter : " A cross raguly," 

[Wrong reading, as I can vouch for 

the true one being " On a cross a sprig of oak with three 
(may be five) leaves (which makes the cross look raguly), 
and an acorn at the end of each of the three." This is 
wrongly drawn on the shields in Glos. Vis., 1569, p. 208, 
and Glos. Trans., vi. 297, where the sprig has only two leaves 
and an acorn in chief, and through engraver's error it is 
tricked false, " ar." instead of " az." Papworth gives this 
as Brayne, but the next coat on p. 660, under Tree, is 
" Sa. on a cross or an oaken slip of three acorns vert," 
would be a better reading, and therefore I have put it 
in brackets as the family. The marshalling would say 
an alliance of Brayne or Digus. I should think the latter, 
but Rudder, 429, sums the heraldry up with 2d. and 3d. 
not understood. In the pedigree of Brayne, Henry, the 
father of Anne, marries Katherine. . . . Possibly it is her 
family, but the Doyngells were an ancient Cornish family.]

Web, it is more likely to be Richard's wife, who may have 

been an Upton.]

six or and gu.," which also is a most unusual one ; but the 
eighth quartering is given as "Arg. a lion ramp. gu. charged 
on the shoulder with a trefoil or." This is the most likely 
coat, as the former is partially false. I cannot help thinking, 
although it is queried Walker, alias Leigh, of Stretton, that 
it is intended for Morgan, as on p. 259 Dorothy, d. and h.

so given in Essex Vis., 1612, p. 312 : it comes in with Tirrell, 
the fifth quartering, as on p. no. Hughe T. married the d.

Vaughan or Morgan as fourth quartering. 3. The quiver

greyhound's head, I suppose a stag's head couped, perhaps 
erasings knocked off, charged with a crescent erm. On 
helmet above a griffin's head erased, the Watkins crest,

manor in 1608] . 

[FORSTER.] Kempley. Fifth quartering of Finch, 1633 : 
" Parti per fess indented arg. and sa. 4 
hunting horns counterchanged." [I cannot 
find this among the quarterings of Finch, but curiously 
above Herbert, alias Finch, in Kent Vis., p. 14, are the 
Forster arms, with the slight difference in the quarterly coat 
of the I having only two buglehorns, but the 2 is the Dymock 
coat above. Rudder, 509, says, " Per bend and per fess 
indented." More likely " Per pale and per fess," which is 
quarterly. I cannot find the connection, so probably it is a 
quartering of the Pigots.] 

FORTESCUE. Ehrington. First shield. " Az. a bend engr.. 

arg. betw. 2 cotises or." Second shield. 

The same, impaling, first, Glanville (error

of Kerry : " Arg. a cinquefoii az. on a chief gu. a lion pass,

have married "Ann, d. of . . . Kerry." In Glos. N. and Q.

dex. paw a fleur-de-lis (of the first), 1768. [This is evidently 
the same coat as the Forthampton one, though not correctly 
blazoned, and the crest is out of a mural coronet, &c. I can 
find no death 1768 to prove the 3 bars.] Withington, Here 
it is tinctured as the Forthampton one, but the fleurs are 
blazoned cinquefoils, and the crest out of a ducal coronet ; 
but it impaled [Southby] , which proves it to be H.'s coat,

An atchievement without inscription. 2 and 3 quartering of 
Hodges: "2 bars betw. 3 mullets." This, like the Stow one,

" Arg. on a bend sa. betw. 2 cotises of the

the wrong Martins, though without tinctures it is impossible 

to say for certain, both being thought to be M.]

of Pebworth, bore " Sa. on a fess or three mascles az. betw. 

as many swans' heads erased arg. gorged of the second," and 

Grazebrook, Heraldry of Wore, p. 369, gives the arms as the 

text.] Fourth quarter: "Arg. a fess engr. gu. betw. 3

Martm, of Long Melford, Suffolk, and therefore goes to prove 

that the first quartering is M., but I cannot find any proof of 

these in the peds. ; no marriages of Wall with h. of M., and 

no M. and M. one; neither can I find the ?Bray, which is the 

second, or Popham, the third quartering in this shield. The 

crest in the Pebworth hatchment points to the coat being 

intended for Baker, whose arms are somewhat similar, and 

there was a double connection between the M.'s of Ham

3 mullets within a 'double tressure gu.," 
1787. [But I cannot find marriage or 
arms ; if the tinctures were right it would be Murray.] Yate. 
Impaling Query, 81 : " Per pale or and arg. a chev. counter- 
-changed (false) between 3 billets sa.," 1740. Crest: Stag's 
head couped sa. attired or gorged of the last. [This might 
be intended for what the Armories give as "Per pale arg. and 
sa. a chev. betw. three masons' squares all counterchanged." 
The crest has the head erased, and the gorging is a ducal 
coronet.] The same, impaling Query, 81, and the date 1729. 
[Rudder, 855, says Wilham M. and his wife, and gives the 
coat as "Party per pale or and az. a chev. counterchanged 
betw. 3 billets sa." (tliis implies that the billets are on the 
dexter pale), but I think the true blazon seems to be in 
Papworth : "Per pale arg. and sa. a chev. betw. 3 billets 
counterchanged." M., of Isle of Thanet, &c.] 
[? MASON.] ' Leclielade. Impaled with Bampton, 1773: 

"... a lion with two heads," [This 

family bore variations of " Or a lion ramp, 
with two heads az.," but I cannot find marriage.] 
MASSINGER. Pmnsivicli. " Arg. a chev. gu. betw. 3 close 
helmets sa.," 1742. [So does Rudder, 597, 
but Armories give the chev. sa.]

1577: " Quarterly in first quarter a lion pass, 
guard." [In Glos. Vis., 1623, p. 172, this is 
given as " Quarterly or and gu. in the first quarter a lion 
pass, guard, az," [Masey] , but on p. 208, this is given as 
Sore. In the first Robert V. de Chersfeild marries Hawisia, 


Transactions for the Year 1905. 

d. sore and h. St. Fagon, i.e. Sore of St. Fagan's, and his g.s. 
Peter marries Cecilia, d. and h, of Massy de Charfield, so 
it looks as if Massy inherited Sore; but I think M. bore 
" Quarterly gu. and arg., may be or, and the lion pass, arg.," 
so this is most likely Sore. In the Brayne quartering it is 
brought in with Veele.] 

MASTER. Cirencester. Chapel of Jesus. Two shields. 

First: "Arg. a lion ramp, guard, gu. holding 
a rose ( . . . ) in the dex. jamb, stalked vert." 
(Here the rose and its stalk would be all vert.) \_Glos. Vis., 
xvii. p. 291. Sir J. Maclean does not give such a blazon.] 
Second : ? The same, impaling Smyth, of Nibley. [Sir J. 
Maclean says this is Smyth impaling M., which Glos. Vis., 

1682, p. 120, would corroborate, as Bridget M. married 
Thomas S.] Over monument : " Gu. a lion ramp, guard, or 
holding a rose stalked vert," 1661, Sir William M., Golden 
Knt., and his wife, Alice Estcourt, 1660. Here the field and 
lion are quite changed, but the rose is still vert. There is 
no date unfortunately to the first, but this one is given. Sir 
J. Maclean does not give this. It is curious that Mr. Carles 
in the Appendix, although he gives Sir William's monument, 
does not give the arms.] Leigh, or Lye. Impaled with 
Browne : " Gu. a lion ramp, guard, or holding a rose . . ." 

1683. Mary, d. of Sir William M., Knt., married Richard B. 
Longhope. " Lion ramp, holding a rose." [No tinctures to 
guide one. Thomas M., 1682, married Bridget . . . 1697. 
This marriage is not in any of the peds., but the Thomas 
may be a s. of William M., B.D., and Susan Yatch, really 
Yate.] Newent. " Gu. a lion ramp, guard, arg. holding a 
rose ppr.," 1687, impaling Query, 42. [Here is a different 
metal for the lion, whilst the proper of the rose may mean 
anything.] Preston (Cirencester). " Gu. a lion ramp, guard, 
or tail forked supporting betw. his paws a rose of the field 
stalked and leaved vert," 1669, impaling Fox, 1699. Also 
in lozenge shield. The same, 1607, and as first, 1728. [At 
this date the tail of the lion had become forked, but the rose 
has become false. This is earlier than the one given by 

Heraldry of Gloucestershire. 


Rudder, 360, which is " Gu. a Hon ramp, guard, his tail 
double or, holding in his paws a rose arg." No mention of 
stalked, which it certainly was.] Wotton Underedge. Impaling 
[Cornwall] : " Gu. a lion ramp, guard, arg. supporting in 
his forepaws a rose of the field leaved and barbed vert." 
[Cornwall should be on an escut. of pret., as Glos. Vis., 
1623, p. Ill, says Bridgett was d. and sole h, of John C., of 
Marlborow, Wilts.] The same as last, impaling [Fulnetby]. 
Richard M., Dr. of Physic, married Elizabeth, d. of . . . F., 
CO. Lincoln. [Le Neve's Knights, 513, gives his coat, granted 
by G. Dethick, &c., in 1568: " Gu. a lion ramp, guard, or 
supporting a rose arg. stalked vert," but the blazon in the 
Vis., 1623, says " Gu. a' lion ramp, guard, or holding in the 
paws a rose of the field [a white rose in a red (sic), surely a 
red within a white], stalked and leaved vert," whereas the 
1682 Vis. gives " Gu. a lion ramp, double queued or, in the 
paws a rose arg. slipt vert."] The same as the blazon 
impaling Cornwall, impaled with Long. [Glos. Vis., 1682, 
p. 120: Elizabeth, 1658, d. of George M. and Bridget C, 
married secondly Sir Walter L., of Draycott, Wilts.] As 
the last, impaled with Oldisworth. [The last Elizabeth 
M. married first Edward O., of this parish.] 
[MASTER.] Stonehotise. Marshalled on the sinister side 

with Smith : " A lion guard. . . , holding 
in his dext. paw a rose . . .'' whilst 
Fowler is on the dexter side. \^Glos. Vis., 1682, p. 120, 
gives Thomas S., of Stonehouse, marriage with Bridget 
and on page 172 his first marriage with Mary F.] 
? MATHEW. Thovnhiry. Impaling Weare, 1781 : " Sa. 

a lion ramp, or." Really, " Or. a lion 
ramp, sa.," 1788. [Edward M. married 
Susanna W.] 2 and 3 quartering of Salmon, 1793: "Arg. 
a lion ramp, sa." [This is M., but it is an error for 
Stokes, as I read it in 1899 "Arg. a lion ramp, double 
queued sa.," which really is " Sa. a lion ramp, double 
queued erm." I cannot find marriage, but a son is called 
Thomas Stokes Salmon."] Wheatenhurst. Two shields in 


Transactions for the Year 1905. 

E. window. "Sa. a lion ramp, or," [I doubt this 

being the first coat attributed to M., and think it must 
belong to one of the many famihes bearing it.] 
[MATHEW.] Tovtwovth. First shield in window, mar- 
shalled with Veel : " Az. a lion ramp, arg.," 
given as Mouthalt. [This is given in 
Glos. Vis., 1623, p. 162, where it is the eighth and Veel the 
ninth quarterings of Throgmorton as Mathew ; so as 
William T. married Margaret, d. and h. of Sir David M., 
of Rayder, and Alice, d. and h. of Robert V., married 
David M., of Rayder, Knt., I think it more likely to be 
inherited by M. from Welsh ancestors.] Eight4i quartering 
of Throkmorton : " Arg. a lion ramp, sa.," given as 
Keyneston. [Here it is the same quartering as in the 
Vis., Throgmorton with Veel the ninth, so I think, as this 
is a truer M. coat, that it is intended for the same person.] 
Wotton Underedge. Sixth quartering of Baynham, 1667 • 

" Sa. a lion ramp, arg.," [This is marshalled with 

Veel, and this blazon is quite as common as its reverse, 
so I cannot help thinking that the " az." field in the glass 
at Tortworth is faded " sa."] 

? MATTHEWS. Tovtwovth. " Sa. a lion ramp. arg. crowned 
or," 1 761. [This is reall}^ Segrave, and 
without the " crowned or " would be 

Mathew]; but it bears an escut. of pret., " Gu. 3 fishes 

fessways in pale arg.," which in the next is named M. 

The same as the last, impaled with Lapley, 1756. [I cannot 

find any M. bearing this coat ; it is more likely to be Roche. 

Unfortunately I cannot find Lapley family or their arms, so 

as to prove anything.] 

MAUDUIT. Down Ampney. Fifteenth quartering of 

Hungerford, brought in by the eleventh 
MoLEYNS : Az. (generally gu.) three pales 
dancette or." [Aubrey and Jackson give this as *' Or 3 pales 
wavy gu.," and say that ^gidia, h. of John, Lord M., 
married Sir John de Molines, but the coat is more likely to 
be Molines.]

MAXWELL. Tewkesbury . Impaled with Fowke, i8i8 r: 
*'Arg. a saltier sa. in chief and in base 
{i.e. betw.) a crescent of the second within

George M., of Twining.] 

[MAXWELL.] Twining. Impaled witfi Hancock : " Arg.. 

on a saltire sa. an annulet or stoned az. {i.e.. 

a gem ring), in base a crescent." Fosbrooke's- 
Glos., ii. 293, says this should be reversed, viz. M. impaling 
H., as Ann, d. of Peter H., 1776, married George M., Esq.;: 
she was also a coh., so it ought to be on an escut. of pret.] 
Crest (this is M.'s, so it looks as if error in text): A dexter

ped. gives this Morgan marriage, but, being quartered, I

Walter M. married Elizabeth Betterton, and had a s. 
Edmond, who married Mary, d. and h. of Robert Savory, 
of Hannington, a family which resided in that place from the 
time of King John. I imagine the H. to be near Cricklade, 
in Wilts. ; but I can find no reference to the family. How- 
ever, we have a Savory bearing a Savery coat, and, what is 
more remarkable, the M. arms are given by Atkyns, Nayler,

is not tinctured, the position of the ^gyrons cannot be 
determined, but the inescutcheon is certainly too small, 
and should join on the chief line the two palets ; the 
variations of this coat are great, but one of the chief 
points is the question whether it has a chief, since 
in many cases the first bar is on the chief line, 
when it would be " Az. 3 bars, and the palets and 
gyrons in chief or." Also the position of the gyrons varies; 
in the older coats they are based on the palets, not on the 
bar, and the palets vary in number from one to three. This

p. 56, says Richard, second s. of Kennard de la B. and 
Elizabeth Huddlestone, married Margaret, d. and h. of . . . 
Newman, but he died s.p. 1637; so I think it may be 
Richard, second s. of John de la B. and Sibill Scudamore, 
the last's cousin, who also died sans issue, that married 
Margaret. The Newmans are stated to be of Staffordshire, 
but they are not in that Visitation.]

Cooper. But Rudder, 630, gives the arms as "A chev. 
betw. 3 doves," and doves are the more common blazon; but 
wood-wallises are wood-peckers, though I think wood- 
pigeons, which is one blazon, are meant.] The same,

that is Trotman it cannot be that, so I imagine it is the last

cannot prove it.]

Whittington, of Pantley, first wife ; so he ought to have 
borne this as a quartering.] Third, quarterly as second, 
impaling Wroughton quarterly with Lewknor. [This is no 
doubt, but there is no date, intended for Sir Henry's wife.

Crump. Colne S. Aldwyn's. Quarterly i and 4 with 2 and 3 
? Parker : "Az. a lion ramp. betw. semee of crosses croslet 
or," Henry P., Esq., 1643, and Ann, gentlewoman, 1658. 
[Rudder, 385, suggests that they are of the Powle family, but 
it is more probable of the Saperton stock, and might be the 
Henry, s. of Gyles P. and Ellen Lewkenor.] 
[? POOLE.] Notgrove. Impaled with Whittington, 

quarterly i and 4 with 2 ? [Solers] and 3 
Query, 45 : . . . a lion ramp. . . ." 
[Rudder, 583, says Pool. Of course there might have been a 
Whittington- Poole marriage, but the only one in the ped. 
is the marriage of Gyles P. with Elizabeth W., so this would 
be wrongly marshalled, and the other quarterings do not help.] 
[POPE.] Cohevley. On lozenge shield, ensigned with 

Earl's coronet, impaling Dutton, 1656 : 
" Party per pale tophaz {sic or) and sapphire 
(az.) on a cheveron betw. 3 griffins' heads erased, 4 fleurs-de-

Esq., of Tewkesbury Lodge, married Dorothy N. The same, 
third quartering of Martin, on escut. of pret. on Wall, 
1808. There was a Robert Martin Popham Wall in 1847. 
? POPHAM. Cirencester. Error for [Barendes] . Third 

quartering of D'Anvers : " Gu. 2 bars or 
in chief 2 stags' heads cabosed of the 
second." [Sir J. Maclean, Glos. Trans., xvii. 299, says it 
may be Barrandyne, presumably some ancestor of the 
Branchester family.] Down Ampney. The same error, 
second quartering of D'Anvers. 





FOR THE Year 1905. 

PORTER. Chircham. i and 4 shields, impaled with 

Oldisworth, 1570: " Gu. 5 marlions' wings 
in saltire arg.," 1576. [Rudder, 490, says 
martin's, but Glos, Vis., 1623, p. 126, as above. There is nO' 
engraved coat on the plates to refer to, but the marlion was 
the merlin hawk, and the ''in saltire" would mean like five 
on the dice. On p. 127, Tacye, d. of Arthur P. and Alice 
Arnold, married Edward O.] Second shield. The same, 
impaling Arnold, which is the marriage before. Ehrington.. 
Second quartering of Keyt, 1662 : " Sa. 3 bells arg. a canton

of John Pratt, butcher, ob. 1514; but in the 
plate marked 30 it is the following :] Cross patonce and 
J. P.," which Bigland says is John P., a chantry priest, 
which is more likely ; it is apparently " Arg. a cross patonce 
betw. in base the letters J. P. sa." [Page 281 he also gives a 
shield, "Arg. a chev. gu. charged with the letters D. A. P., 
and in base a woman's head (and shoulders vested)," which 
is supposed to be Dame Alys P., widow of John P. Hardly 
likely to be styled dame.]

? PRICE. Tewkesbury. "In chief a cross betw. 2 fleurs- 

de-lis.'' Monument says P., 1787. [It may 
be a maiden coat, as the only coat I can find 
is a cross betw. pheons.] 
PRIGG. Westerleigh. Arg. a lion ramp, ragardent 

az. betw. 3 trefoils slipt vert," 1723. [Not in 
Armories. Rudder, 807 : Richard P., ? chemist 
or M.D., of Bristol; and below. Rev. Thomas P., 1986 (sic) 
? 1786, probably a son, presented a flagon.] 
[? PROBERT.] Lidney. (Per pale az. and sa.) 3 fleurs-de-lis 
(or)." [There are two inscriptions to Richard 
Morgan, 1782, second s. of another Richard 
M. and his wife Eleanor, d. and coh. of Henry P., of Argoed, 
CO. Monmouth ; so it looks as if they inherited this coat.]

or," 1742. [_Glos. Vis. J 1682, p. 137, and 
Rudder, 570 : Sir Edmund P., Knt., Lord

and h. of Sir Edmund P., took the name of P. As this does 
not appear in Armories nor under Hopkins P. in Land. Gent.,

P., but in the Smyth illuminated ped. at 


Transactions for the Year 1905. 

Ashton Court this is given as Oteley, which are oatsheaves, 
where it is quartered with Grafton ; therefore the third 
quartering ought to be G., but it is a daub for Skerne, as 
Thomas Tewther married the eldest d. of G. Grafton, and 
he the d. and h. of Otele}'.]

PRYNN. ... 

in the ihustration : " Arg. (really or) a fess 

engr. az. betw. 3 escallops gu.," 1772. 

[Rudder, 331, gives "fess and escallops az." Elizabeth, d. 

and, I suppose, h. of William P. and EHzabeth Ridler, 

married Dodington H.] The same as first, with "or" field. 

Monument says to Elizabeth, 1771, wife of William P.; but 

it is his arms and has the crest, A demi eagle dispL, which 

Wore. Vis., 1569, p. no, gives as Out of a ducal coronet or a 

demi eagle displ. gu. beaked sa. 

PULLEY. Dursley. Impaling Hayward, 1748. No 

blazon to either. [P. has two coats — an 
Essex P., " Or 3 eagles displ. az.," and

1682, p. 139 : Richard, s. of Richard P. and Sarah Turret, of 
Hartpury, married Anne, d. of John Rogers.] The same, 
1724. This is the Anne Rogers, wife of Richard P. The 
same, 1744, impaling " a lion ramp. betw. 3 fleurs." [This 
is Samuel P. and Elizabeth . . . his wife, 1752 ; he is not in 
the ped., so may be another brother of Richard, or else a son 
not entered.] The same, 1744, impaling Pulton, 1726. [So 
this seems as if Samuel P. married first this Anne Pulton 
and afterwards the last Elizabeth.] The same, 1729, John, 
s. of Richard P. and Anne Rogers in ped. The same, 1758, 
Richard P. and Mary his wife, 1760. [He is eldest s. of 
Richard P. and Anne R., and comes into the ped., but he

unmarried, 1682, in the Vis.] Newmt. The same as last, 
1731, Richard P., of this parish, gent. [Glos, Vis., 1682, 
p. 139, gives date 1701 ; and the monument says Mary his d. 
died 1763 instead of 1762, and does not give her marriage 
with Ralph Barnes, 1778.] Painswich. Tinctured as first, 
1792. [Rudder, 597, gives the same, and says Richard, 
apothecary, married Mary, d. of John Edwards.] 
PURNELL. Cam. Impaled with Phillimore, 1762 : 

" Arg. on a fess sa. 3 cinquefoils of the field 
betw. -3 lozenges gu.," 1764. [Monument 
only mentions Elizabeth, wife of John P., gent. There is an 
Elizabeth Pernell mentioned in Glos. Vis., 1623, index, but 
in error.] Duvsley. Impaling Small, 1735. The same, un- 
tinctured, 1729, Thomas P. and Anne his wife. [Rudder, 426, 
gives the " fess sa." and the tinctures, but S. is wrong.] The 
same as Rudder, with "fess sa.," impaled with Wallington, 
1765, Mary his wife, 1758. The same as last, 1782, impaling 
Philipps, 1765. Monument says Phelps. John P., of New- 
house, married Anna, d. of John Phelps. Stinchcomhe. The 
same as Dursley, only with the cinquefoils "or," 1866, 
quartering Bransby, Cooper, and Paston. Purnell 
Bransby Cooper P. inherited from his mother Anne, sole h. 
of William P., of Ferney Hill. Wickwar. " Arg. on a fess 
betw. 3 mascles voided (!) sa. (Rudder, 821, az.) as many 
cinquefoils of the first," 1726, impaling Hickes, 1743. John 
P., of the Pool House in this parish, married Jane, d. of 
John H. and Elizabeth Oldisworth. The same, 1726, im- 
paling HicKES, 1743. Crest : Talbot sejant resting his foot 
on a shield. [Rudder does not give the crest, but I think it 
is wrong, as the Purnells bore : "Out of a ducal coronet arg., 
may be or, a demi griffin segreant erminois holding in dex. 
claw a thunderbolt ppr."] 

PURSCELL, Clifford Chambers. Twelfth quartering of 
Raynesford, 1632: "Vairy arg. and gu. on 
a bend sa. 3 boars' heads erased or." [^Glos.

3 boars' heads couped close arg. tusked or." I believe not 

erased ; brought in by the eleventh quartering Arderboughe^ 

as Richard A. married Eleanor, h. of P.]

quarterly : " Az. a chief arg." [Burke s 
Peerage says Francis Reynolds, third Baron 

Ducie, married first Mary, d. of T. Purvis, Esq., of Shepton

[FURY.] Bicknor English. Impaled with Wyrall, 

1702, named Browne, 1739, in error: "On 
a fess 3 mullets pierced betw. as many 
martlets." [Really, "Arg. on a fess betw. 3 martlets sa. as 
many mullets of the field." Glos. Vis., 1682, p. 140: Martha, 
fourth d. of Thomas P. and Barbara Kyrle, married Jeptha 

? PURY. Tainton. " Arg. on a fess betw. 3 fleurs-de- 

lis sa. (certainly an error in reading ; should 
be martlets, which Rudder, 726, gives with 
added tinctures) 3 mullets of the first," 1684. [_Glos. Vis., 
1682, p. 140: Robert, s. of Thomas P. and Barbara Kyrle, 
scholar of Pembroke College, Oxon.] The same error, 
impaling Kyrle, 1688. [This is Barbara of the last.] The 
same error, quarterly i and 4 with 2 and 3 [More]. The 
ped. in Glos. Vis. begins with Thomas P. marrying Maud, 
d. and h. of William A'More, co. Berks. The same as last, 
1693, impaling Kyrle. [Thomas, s. of Thomas and Mary 
Alye, married Barbara, d. of James K., of Walford, co.

either h. or coh. before she died.] 

PYE. Dymock. " Erm. a bend lozengy gu.," 1729^ 

Crest : Cross fitchy (gu.) betw. 2 wings 
(arg.). [Monument says Edward Pye 
Chamberlain, Esq., of the Boyce ; and Rudder, 411, says 
there is a flatstone with these arms to Edward P., of Boyce, 
who died 1692, aged 80. I cannot find a Chamberlain-Pye 
marriage, so perhaps he only inherited the property.] 
PYNDAR. Kempley. Two shields. First : " Az. a chev. 

betw. 3 lions' heads erased or ducally 
crowned," 1722. [Rudder, 509, gives the 
coat false, " Arg. a chev. betw. 3 lions' heads erased or," 
leaving out the crowns; Nayler and Atkyns give the " chev. 
arg." The "chev." and "heads" were originally "arg.," 
and the latter " goutty de poix"; very hkely this has 
become "erminois."] Impaling Loggin, 1759, Thomas P. 
and Elizabeth his wife. Second : The same, 1721, impaling 
Lygon, 1736. [Reginald P. married Margaret, d. of William 
L. and Margaret, d. and h. of Thomas Corbyn, so her coat 
ought to have been quartered.] 

RKE. Abbenhall. Impaling ? Colchester, 1738 : 

"Arg. on a fess sa. 3 mullets of the first, a

Dorothy, d. of Richard Y., of Arlingham. Stapleton. Second 
atchment. Third quartering of Whitchurch on escut. of 
pret. on Smyth. The same, only the "fess az." Third 
atchment. The same as last, only it is quarterly 2 and 3 with 
I and 4 Walter. Also on monument, see Rudder, 694, but 
arms not given. Quarterly 2 and 3 with i and 4 Walter, on 


Transactions for the Year 1905. 

escut. ofpret. on Whitchurch. [Fosbrooke, ii. 162, confirms 
this ped., and says Rowles Walter married Jane, d. of 
Nathaniel P. and Mary Colchester ; but she had a brother, 
Duncombe, who continued the line, so how she became an 
h. is not proved.] 

PYTCHARD. Maysemon. Fifth quartering of Fembruge, 
1784 : " Gu. a fess or betw. 3 escallops arg." 
[This is the third quartering of Baskerville, 

the third here, in Hereford Vis., 1569, p. 7; but neither in 

that ped. nor in the P. one, p. 59, is it proved.] 

QUINTINE. Almondshivy. Second quartering of Ivy, 1630 : 

"Erm. on a chief gu. 3 lions ramp, or." • 
Bigland says rightly, wrongly marshalled. 
This should be impaled with Ivy quarterly with Vyell, as 
Hugh, s. of Thomas I., married Ann, d. of Michael Q. 



ABSTON& WICK. Obliterated impahng of Haynes, 1709. 
^' [There is no Thomas H. in the Visitations, 

but Rudder, 212, and monument says he 
was lord of the manor, and that her Christian name was 
Mary.] On a shield betw. Samuel Woodward, 1648, and 
Mrs. Mary Seede, widow, formerly wife of Samuel W., are 
3 chevronells." [So I suppose it is her maiden coat.] 

ALDERI.EY. Impaling of [ Devonshier] , 1731 : "A cross 
betw. 4 eagles displ." [Christopher, of 
Bristol; but there are so many bearing this 

coat that, without tinctures and ped., it is impossible to say 

for certain, perhaps Strachey.] 

ALMONDSBURY. Second quartering of Veele, 1577 : "A chief 
^' erm." [This is not given among the quar- 

terings in Glos. Vis. ; possibly intended for 

Heraldry of Gloucestershire. 


Harding, as Jeffery le V. married Maud, d. and h. of Elias H., 
younger brother of Robert Fitzharding.] Fifth quartering 
of the same, not in Vis. : "3 lozenges conjoined in fess." [No 
tinctures, and no ped. to guide one.]

the other quartering o^ Weston : " Six 
fleurs-de-lis in pile" [i.e. 3.2.1. This does 
nor come in the Surrey Vis. quartering of W.], Charles W., 
1724. Third quartering in both : " Six lioncels ramp." 
[This also does not come into the Surrey Vis. quarterings, 
but by the marshalling it is brought in by the last.] Jane, 
relict of Charles W., 1742. Sixteenth shield on screen: 

" Chequy or and az. within bord. gu. billette arg.," 

£Might be Dreux or Warren.] Impaled with Wihiam Freme.

" Three eagles' heads erased." [Glos. Vis., 

1623, notes p. 108, gives their marriage, and she was a 

widow ; so it would be her maiden coat, but there are no

time to the Yates: "Per pale az. and gu. on a chev. arg. 
betw. 3 palm trees of the third, a rose betw. two pinks ppr, 
slipped or" (this last is sure to be faded vert, else it would 
be false). The Rev. W. Wynn Lloyd, the present Rector, 
has sent me two varieties of this (one has oak branches and 
marigolds, the other three pinks), and says it is the Priory

FAIRFORD. Impaled with Barker : " Arg. a pomegranate 
ppr. . . ." [Bigland gives Whitson a 
pomegranate, most probably owing tO' 

Spanish connections, so this may be that, though I cannot 

find a B.-W. marriage, possibly som'e other Spanish lady. 

See also Query, 31.] 

Impaled with Stratford : "A bend engr. a 

crescent for diff. . . ." [Perhaps 

intended for a bend erm., Walwyn.] 

2 and 3 quartering of Hampton : " Lozengy

Fifth shield. " A chev. betw. 3 leopards''

be Dennys.]

s. Peter, 1588. [I cannot find this family, but in Glos. Trans. ^ 
ii. 239, Blaunche is stated to be widow of Peter O., vicar, 
and that she remarried D. Gardner; but the coat given omits 
the "in chief a garb.," but in vol. xix. 341 they are given as 
above, and in the note Blanche is given as wife of William 
G., and the name is spelled Oveat, so it is most probable the 
first is intended for O. and the second for G.] Impaled with 
Pulton, 1744: "... lion ramp. . . . betw. 3 fleurs-de-lis

Stinchcombe, 1452 : "... a chev. betw.

[Papworth says " Per pale crenelly or and 
az. 2 fleurs-de-lis of the first," Gosnall ; but these would not 
be counterchanged. Perhaps Aylward.] Rev. John D., 
and the monumental inscription is signed S. D. Impaling 

Heraldry of Gloucestershire. 


Petre : . . . 2 garbs ... in base a lamb ... a chief 
chequy." [Monument says George Petre, 1630, and Eleanor 
his wife erected it. If so, the arms are wrongly marshalled ; 
but the George P. of the ped. in Glos. Vis., 1623, p. 123, 
married Grace, d. of John Pill, and the one on p. 124 is not 
married. Then another George P., 1698, and Elizabeth his 
wife, 1702. Again, Ehzabeth, 1710, wife of Samuel Roach. 
This would be right marshalling, but there is no R. like this 
known. Possibly it might be a guild coat, which when they 
had no arms of their own they sometimes used.] 

Glass in church. First shield. " Or a fess 
gu. over all a bend az."

" Per pale and per chev. arg. and sa. betw. 
(?) 3 martlets (2 and i) counterchanged." 
[Papworth says R., but there seems to be great doubts as to 
this being the correct blazon. Rudder, 829, gives the field 
the same; but the charges "mullets." Glos. Vis., 1682, 
p. 202, says that this Thomas W., of Cornden, married 
Hesther, d. of James Hawkins, of Washbourne, co. Wore. 
Not mentioned in Wore, Vis., but according to Grazebrook, 
p. 267, the family bore "Arg. on a saltire sa. 5 fleurs-de-lis 
or." Papworth gives " Per pale or and az. a chev. betw. 
3 lions ramp, of the first" as Hawkins, but one would 
scarcely think this was intended. Of course, Thomas may 
have married again. The next monument to it is another 
Thomas, 16G9, g.s. of the last ; but he is not stated to have 
married. However, there is a Hester, 1674, wife of a 
Thomas W. ; so perhaps he did, and that it is she who 
is represented by this coat. Perhaps it is worth noting 
that among the list is an Elizabeth W., 1713, gent.]

Vis., p. 143, her mother's name is not given. This, if correct 
blazon, proves her family ; therefore^- this would be her 
father's coat.] Dowdeswell. The same as first, 1713, impaling

Esq., married a William B., who died in 
1692, at the age of fifteen years, and was left a widow 
when 21. She died in 1726, aged 57, so the first date 
is an impossibility ; but she is stated to have erected the 
monument, otherwise one would have thought it was an 
ancestor. Rudder, 450, however, gives the same monument 
and correct date in figures. Bigland's error (may have been 
printer's) MDCXVII. ought to be MDCXCII.]

quartered with Browning. Elizabeth R., the wife of John 
B. [This should have been an escut. of pret. on B., as she

68, below which is this shield, so there has been some 
confusion here. The arms and crest are those of [Cater] .

annulet is a plate on the centre leaf, which implies a charge, 
not a cadeney diff. Several members of the family from 
1758 to 1782.] Mickleton. In lozenge shield, impaling Query,

Minchin Hampton, only without the charges on the fleurs-de-

mark for diff. and the plate an uncut or wrongly painted 
annulet. Glos. N. and Q , i. 181, gives Ann and Charlotte of

? SMITH. Bouvion - on - the - Hill. Escut. of pret. on 

Harward, 1743: " Az. a chev. erm. betw. 

3 lions ramp, and as many altars or." 
[Query the reading of this. Are the lions in chief and the 
altars in base? I think this must be intended for Smijth, 
Barts., as monument is to Kemp H., Doctor of Physic, and 
Altham H., his s., 1733. Now Thomas S., Esq., who was 
created a Bart, in 1661, married first Johanna, d. of Sir 
Edward Altham, Knt. (Burke's Peerage), by whom he had ten 
sons; but Kimber says he had eleven sons and two ds., so 
it was most probably a g.d. of this marriage that married 
Kemp H. The true blazon is " Sa. on a fess dancetty arg. 
betw. 3 lioncels ramp, reguard. of the second each sup- 
porting an altar or flaming ppr., nine billets of the field."] 
Todington. Seventh atchment, impaling Tracy : " Or a

Combe-Hay, co. Somerset, Esq., married Ann, d. of Thomas 
Charles, fifth Viscount T. His coat is given by CoUinson as 
" Gu. on a chev. or betw. 3 cinquefoils arg. 2 leopards' faces

Cirencester. Impaled with Master : " Sa. on 
a cross engr. betw. 6 crosses patty fitchy or 
3 fleurs-de-lis of the field each charged with 

a plate." (See Smith, or Smyth, Minchin Hampton, &c.) 
[There may have been this Mastef-Smyth marriage, but 
the only one in the Glos. Vis., 1682, is Smyth-Master, and 
this is the marshalling of the one in Cirencester given by 
Sir J. Maclean, Glos. Trans., xvii. 291, and plate 114, which 
would be Thomas S. Not in S. ped., but in Master in the 
1682 Vis., so probably his second marriage with Bridget, 
third d. of Sir William M. and Alice Estcourt ; therefore I 
think an error of Bigland.] Henhury. On lozenge shield. 
" Gu. on a chev. b'etw. 3 cinquefoils arg. each charged 
with an annulet of tlie first as many leopards' heads (faces) 
sa.," 1760. [Why this annulet ? Her father was in direct 
line, as he was Sir John who married Elizabeth Astry. See 
CoUinson, ii. 293. Is it not more likely that the cinquefoils 
were pierced ? Anne, aged 68, being his eldest d. and un- 
married. The five ds. are not given correctly in Burke's 
Peerage.^ NiUey. Third of three shields. " Sa. on a chev. 
engr. betw. 6 crosses pattee fitche or 3 fleurs-de-lis az." [This, 
although Rudder, 575, says each fleur-de-lis is charged with 
a plate at the top, and Glos. Vis., 1682, p. 171, the same, is 
without it, and it therefore looks like a cadency annulet 
where it is used, I cannot help fancying that the Nibley 
family did not bear it, but that it was borne by the 
Stonehouse branch as a difference.] Stonehouse. Quarterly 
I and 4. The same as last, only with the difference of a 
label of 3 points arg. with 2 and 3, Fowler, 1675. [This,, 
according to Glos. Vis., 1682, p. 172, must be the first of the 
Stonehouse branch, yet he being a second s. does not bear 
the annulet or plate, but a label, so there seems to be some 
fault in the heraldry they bore.] Rudder, 702 : Thomas S., 
1684, married Mary F., 1675. ? The same (but chev. not 
engr.) impaling on dexter side Fowler, and on sinister side

sons, Edward and William, of Henry Guise and Mary 
Cooke [and therefore g.sons of the shield above]. The 
same, 2 and 3 quartering with i and 4, Guise, and escut. of 
pret., CooKE, Henry G., 1749, aged 51. [So Dorothea was 
an heiress; therefore the two shields before should have 
borne S. on an escut. of pret., and this last one should have 
been over the two infants.] Upton S. Leonard's. The same, 
impaling Brabazon. Also the same, 1754. Crest : A fox

[Given in Glos. Vis., 1682, p. 117, as 2 and 
3, " Arg. on a chev. gu. 3 cross crosslets or " ; but this is 
not likely to be intended for the sar6e coat, as it appears in 
Glos. Vis., 1623, p. 60, and in Kent Vis., i6ig, p. 116, as 
" Crosses pattee." In both, the peds. do not include this 
marriage, and on p. 118 of the 1682 the second Sir 
Gabraell Lowe, 1704, aged 86, married Lydia, d. (not 
stated to be h.) of Sir Stephen S., and in Essex Vis., 1634,

"... a fess dancette . . ." [Rudder, 583, 
says S., but if so, the arms would be " Or a fess az.," as 
given by Nayler, though it might be " vair," which might 
give the fess a zigzag outline; but I can find no Poole-S. 
marriage. Catherine, the Glos. h., married Twyniho. " Or 
a fess dancetty az." is Haslewood ; it does not come into 
Poole quarterings.]

marriage, but imagine that she must have been a sister of 
Edward Maria S., ob. s.p., who was the last at Pauntley,

Bere and Baghott quarterly with 2 and 3 grand quarters 
De la Bere and Stephens quarterly, or it is De la Bere i and 

4 grand quarters with Baghott and Stephens 2 and 3 grand

De la Bere-Stephens, and there was a Baghott-Stephens 
marriage, but I cannot make out that they were heiresses or

be too young, and he must have belonged to an older 
generation not entered, especially as the former's marriage 
is given to Katherine Browning. The monument com- 
memorates two of his children, John, 1688, and James, 1695, 
aged five years, so they were children of his old age. If he

really an error, as Rudder, 855, says Mr. Stokes is the 
present owner, and his arms are " Sa. a lion ramp, his tail 
double, erm.," and that the arms at Wickwar on the monu-

same, 1692, Richard, aged 22. [There are no dates of ages 
on any of the others, so I supposed the last to be brother of 
the 1671 Henry. Now monuments say Ann, 1671, d. of 
George S. and wife of Henry S. In 1623 Vis. she is given as 
the youngest d. of George S. and Elizabeth Hobby, and 
therefore sister of the Henry who married Margaret . . . 
therefore another Henry has to be found. There is one, the 
fifth s. of John S. and Mary Throgmorton, but he is brother 
of Anne's father, so she would be his niece. It is possible 
that Henry, 1671, eldest s. of Henry S. and ? Margaret . . . 
entered in 1682 Vis. as ob. ccel., might have married his 
cousin, in which case Richard would not be brother but s., 
and he together with his. sister Alice, 1699, were grand-

Anne, d. of Robert S., of Walford, co. Hereford. There are 
other dates on monument, but these tally with the Fis. 
Why then is Walwyn i and 4, and not S ? This is not borne 
out by Hereford Vis., where an Edward W. marries Christian, 
d. of John S. And again, Glos. Vis., 1623, p. 175, George 
W., of CO. Oxon., marries Martha, d. of . . . S., of Farm- 
cote ; but Glos. Vis., 1623, p. 156, William S. married Ann, 
d. of Edward W., of Bosbury. She may have been an h., 
though not stated, which would have brought the quartering 
into the Stratfords, but there is no Robert in their descend-

John H. ; it is really putting the cart before the horse.]

these two Teasts is Mary, wife of the abovesaid John 
Sampson; she died 1769, aged 86. So J. S. was born 1677,

Sampson ; if so, it must be one of the two Teasts. But as 
Rudder gives only the ? Teast coat on J. S.'s monument, I

John T., the elder, Esq., married Elizabeth, one of the cohs. 
of Sir Charles Brandon, Knt., Duke of Suffolk, K.G. [Both 
her Christian and surname are different from the ped. quoted 
above. Rudder, 472, says the same as the monument, and 
Maddison in his Lincolnshire Peds. says the same as the Vis. 
for the other two sisters, whilst the arms bear the Vis. out. 
She could only be an Elizabeth and a coh. if she was a sister, 
not d. of Catherine, who married John Gorney.] The same 
as before (I imagine only the grand quarters), 1609. William 
T., the elder, he married Mary, d. of Sir Edward Tirrell, of

this has caused the error at Cheltenham. It is curious to 
note that both Papworth and Burke give the T. coat as 
" Or a bend sinister az.," whereas all the Glos. historians, 
Nayler and the Visitations give it " dexter." Accordmg to

[Torrington] in error, as the last is the fourth quartering.

annulets sa. He also gives Pole's blazon for the Gloucester 
family, and which is, I think, the right one, viz. " Arg. a 
ragged fece trunked gu. betw. 3 pellets."] Also fourth 
quartering of Ivy, 1630, wrongly marshalled. It should be 
2 and 3, "Arg. a fess raguly gu. betw. 3 annulets sa." [The 
Ivys were a prominent Wilts family, but I cannot trace the 
h. of V.'s marriage.]

and the walnut leaves are in "bend," as in Bigland ; as 
the s. Edmund is stated to be present lord of the manor,

topher ; and the one above, " Here lieth buried with her 
two children Anne, wife of Nicholas W., 1651." [Glos. Vis., 
1682, p. 196, says Nicholas married ? first Anne, d. of . . . 
Webb, of Wotton-under-Edge, and had a d. Anne, ob. 
infant; but on p. 195 there is amother Nicholas whose 
marriage is blank, and it may have been that this Anne 
is his wife, whose s. William is given as the father of the 
Christopher who the monument says was the father of 
Nicholas. I cannot help thinking that this William is the 
other child buried with Anne, and that the Nicholas on 
p. 195, who was the s. of Christopher, second s. of William 
Richmond, alias Webb, bore this coat, and married Anne,

it is good to come across something better than fiction. 
Whether the Alderman himself bore a coat like this is 
certainly not proved, as he died in 1629, but most probably 
this was founded on his Spanish guild trademark or device. 
I only wish Bigland had been able to give the tinctures, but 
most probably it was a metal field with the charge and bord. 
tinctured. The monument to Christopher C, aged 76, says 
nothing of his wife, but an adjoining inscription says Blanch, 
wife of Christopher C, 1690, aged 61, so she was actually

is another coat always given to the Abbey, a variation of 

Mortimer, I put a ? before it, but it seems likely to have

carved coat in the parish church at present seemed to me 

more of a cross than cross pattee.]

but think that the tree originally was arg.] Albinia, d. of

650 : " Sa. a lion ramp. arg. holding in the dexter paw a rose 
of the second." This is given in Armories, but not in 
Papworth. It is possible that it might be a quartered coat 
of " Sa. a lion ramp, arg.," the third quartering of W., viz. 
Teithwalch ; but I think it is a daubed coat of W. with a 
copy of Master. Philip W., aged 70, of Willington's Court ; 
and below Gyles W., 1662, aged 85. There is a Gyles in 
Glos. Vis., 1623, p. 182, s. of Sir Henry W., Knt., and 
Dionysia Bond, who died s.p., possibly this one ; but there 
is no Philip given, who would most probably be his brother.] 
Standish. Four shields covered with whitewash (Rudder, 
682) to Sir Henry W. Crest : A garb erect (banded or) 
sustained by 2 lions ramp, respectant. Restored, i: "Party 
per pale gu. and arg. i a lion ramp, reguard. (no tincture). 
2 a tree ppr." [If this is meant for W. and not a quartered 
coat, it would seem to imply that the lion, and if so arg., 
was in the dexter and the tree in the sinister, which 
heraldically would be correct ; but I think really it is 
reversed, and that the true reading is " Per pale arg. and 
gu. a lion ramp, of the first on the sinister, supporting a tree 
eradicated ppr. on the dexter.] Two other shields are 
marshalled with this— Bond, first wife; Vaughan, second 
wife. The fourth shield is " Quarterly of six," of which 
the first quarter is as the last, and the crest of the restored 
I is given as " A garb supported by 2 lions arg. with a 
crescent for diff.," while the fourth is "A garb erect 
supported by 2 lions ramp. arg. and az." [This last is right, 
and it is curious that the Cecils, the sixth quartering, bore a 
similar crest, the only difference being that their garb was
